The millers will be busy at Sleaford’s historic Cogglesford Mill this weekend as the huge water wheel rumbles into action.

The East Road landmark holds its latest Milling Day on Sunday.

The mill has been producing flour since the early 18th century.

It has been beautifully preserved by North Kesteven District Council, offering a glimpse into milling in bygone days.

Visitors on Sunday will be able to see the huge cogs and wheels use the power of the water wheel to turn the mill stones, producing wholemeal flour using certified organic wheat.

They will also have the chance to learn about the history of the mill and its millers, try their hand at grinding grain, and explore the mill.

In addition, the shop will offer a reminder of the day, with bags of Cogglesford Watermill’s very own flour on sale.

Milling runs from 11am to 4pm.
