Letheringsett Mill, Norfolk

At the time of the Domesday book, 580 water mills were recorded in Norfolk, including one at Letheringsett but there were no windmills. By the 19th century there were only about 80 or 90 watermills still able to work. The red brick mill you see today was built in 1802. Letheringsett watermill is the last remaining watermill in Norfolk to produce flour.Mike and Marion Thurlow took over the mill in 1987 and have restored the mill to working order and it is now an award winning tourist attraction. A speciality wheat, Spelt is milled here at Letheringsett. Originally introduced to Britain by the Romans, Spelt is higher in vitamin B and protein and other wheat, and most wheat sensitive people can tolerate Spelt flour in their diet. Spelt flour is only one of the many different types of flour, dried fruit and nuts that can be purchased in the mill shop. Letheringsett Mill holds regular working demonstrations of milling and a tour of the mill on most weekday afternoons. Mike usually conducts the tour himself and gives an informative and fascinating insight to the history of the mill and flour production.
