Winchester City Mill & Shop


Winchester City Mill is a rare surviving example of an urban working corn mill. The Mill is powered by the fast-flowing River Itchen, which can be seen passing underneath, thrilling visitors. Rebuilt in 1743 on the site of a medieval mill, it remained in use until the early 20th century. The National Trust undertook an ambitious restoration project and the mill resumed grinding flour in March 2004.

In 2018 Winchester City Mill went through an extensive restoration project. The works are now complete and there is an exhibition showing the developing stages of the extensive project. There are children’s trails available throughout the year as well as other interactive activities, such as flour hand milling. The Mill has regular milling and baking demonstrations. Please consult their website for the most up to date listings.

Exploring: Discover the history of milling at the site through our interpretation. Watch CCTV footage of Winchester's resident otters. Explore the South Downs Way with information from our South Downs Gateway display.

Eating and shopping: Browse in our shop for gifts and books. Buy local produce, such as wine and beer, as well as a bag of our freshly milled wholemeal flour.
