Hele Corn Mill

Hele Corn Mill (or 'Old Corn Mill') dates from 1525 and is a unique working watermill in North Devon.

Located just 300m from stunning Hele Bay beach, a visit to the mill makes a perfect family visit. Guided tours are given by the family who run the mill, and children and adults alike will enjoy learning about the history of the mill, from how flour has been made here over the centuries, to some of the mishaps which have befallen the millers! To keep children entertained we have photo quiz, 'find the mice' and 'count the millstone' challenges.

 

One of the highlights of our tour is our 1920s National engine which is in full working order and can be demonstrated for you in our guided tours. In 2012 we returned to milling on the waterpowered stones after a break of some 25 years. Although we do not mill continuously demonstration days will be posted on our "What's on?" page. For milling small quantities of flour, we also use a 1920's Blackstone mill. Our Hele Mill stoneground wholemeal flour is used for baking many of our cakes and can be purchased from our gift shop.
