The present mill, which was built around 1780, is built on the site of a mill mentioned in the Domesday Book and was restored to working order in 1979. It has been designated by English Heritage as a grade II listed building.
The mill is still used to grind wheat flour. Restoration work, completed in 2007, was funded by the Exmoor Sustainable Development Fund. The site is visited by around 10,000 tourists a year.
Famous quotes containing the word working:
“What else are we gonna live by if not dreams? We need to believe in something. What would really drive us crazy is to believe this reality we run into every day is all there is. If I dont believe theres that happy ending out therethat will-you- marry-me in the skyI cant keep working today.”
—Jill Robinson (b. 1936)
