Faye Coulson, Tourism Marketing Assistant at North Kesteven District Council, which owns the 18th century mill, said it was a really good day: “We had nearly 200 people for the milling day,” she said.

The millstones were in action grinding grain and the mill was decorated for Christmas. Visitors could enjoy a free mince pie and glass of mulled wine.

Sherry Forbes of the Manor House Stables in Martin gave Lincolnshire plumbread making demonstrations and giving away recipe sheets.
