Dunster Water Mill

This working Water Mill was restored back to working order in 1979 and dates back from the 18th century. Records from the Domesday Survey of 1086 show that a mill has been on this site since at least that date.

This mill is run and operated as a private business and is on lease to the business owners who provide the finance to keep it operational and actually produce flour on site. The water source is the River Avill and situated beneath Dunster castle the mill has a collection of old machinery and working waterwheels which produce the flour in the traditional way. The shop sells its own flour and a variety of organic and local produce.
