Winchester City Mill is a rare surviving example of an urban working corn mill, Winchester city mill is powered by the fast-flowing River Itchen, which can be seen passing underneath, thrilling our 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.
Whilst under restoration, the mill’s interpretation will extend to include information on the conservation work taking place. It is best for visitors to consult the City Mill's website for the most up to date information.
