About the Traditional Cornmillers Guild

The Guild provides information, support and advice about and for the incrWaterwheel detaileasing numbers of traditional windmills and watermills that have remained in production or have been brought back into full working order in Britain. Whenever possible member mills use wind or water turning sails or waterwheels as their primary source of power. They all mill stoneground flours using horizontal millstones.
In the past traditional mills performed a vital role in feeding both people and animals, and were a familiar sight in most towns and many villages. The Guild promotes the production and use of stoneground flours, and has strong links with farmers and artisan bakers, as well as those who like to make their own bread at home. It is very heartening to see that, since its establishment in the 1980s, many British mills have
been saved, restored, and, very often, brought back into full working order – perhaps more than in any other country. Together we meet and encourage a growing demand for local, distinctive, and home produced flours.

Most of the Guild mills are open to visitors and many have millshops, tea
rooms, milltours, and associated events Golspie Mill stones
and activities to offer. Click on the dropdown menus for details of individual mills. They are usually in interesting and beautiful places. Mills are particularly popular with children and make for a very educational and enjoyable day out for schools.

Traditional Cornmiller's Flour is simply the best
It passes each and every test
Soft and organic and oh so yummy
Turns into bread to fill my tummy!

Not for me the cheap imitation
I prefer quality on every occasion
No need to shout, no need to exclaim
Traditional Cornmiller's are perfect - remember the name!!
