Spelt Milling at Dunster Castle Water Mill

Martin, our Sales and Operations Manager, had a great time at the National Trust’s, Dunster Working Watermill when the 18thcentury mill was put through its paces to mill its first spelt flour, made from our organic spelt grain, in over a hundred years. The mill is situated in an idyllic setting within the grounds of Dunster Castle, which has a long tradition of milling dating back to the Doomesday Book of 1086. 

The surviving mill is a very rare example with double overshot waterwheels, the second of which has recently been replaced and all surrounding machinery repaired. Visitors will be able to see the mill in action every first Wednesday of the month although the National Trust are hoping to increase this if there is sufficient demand.

Our Spelt flour will make a welcome addition to the wholemeal wheat flour currently being milled and will allow visitors to have more opportunities to see the watermill producing flour as it has done for centuries.
