Sturminster Newton Mill

Sturminster Newton Mill is one of a series of ancient flour mills built on the River Stour. It is in a picturesque setting on the south bank approximately 300 yards upstream of a fine mediaeval six-arched bridge. Still in good working order, the Mill provides a unique opportunity to journey back to a simpler time, where you and your family can discover the age-old secrets of harnessing natural power amidst the tranquil beauty of the read Dorset countryside. Come along and enjoy the riverside views, a picnic area alongside the river Stour and country walks for all the family to enjoy. There is a 14th century country inn within 1/2 mile and local fishing permits are available from nearby shops. During the opening season we hold a number of milling weekends where we winnow the grain in the mornings and grind corn into flour in the afternoons. Informal guided tours by our Mill Supervisors are a highly-praised feature of visits to the Mill.
