Sturminster Newton Mill is one of a series of ancient flour mills built on the River Stour
Sturminster Newton Mill, still in good working order, provides a unique opportunity to journey back to a simpler time, when you and your family can discover the age-old secrets of harnessing natural power amidst the tranquil beauty of the real Dorset Countryside. Informal guided tours by out Mill Supervisors are highly praised features of visits to the Mill. This is one of the few remaining flourmills on the River Stour where there has been milling on this site for over 1,000 years.
We still mill flour regularly through the season and sell it in the Mill, Museum and some local shops. The Mill is open every Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Thursday from Saturday 30th March to Monday 30th September. Entry is £4 for adults and £1 for children with free parking. Visits by parties are welcome and these can be arranged to take place outside normal opening hours, by prior arrangement with the Mill Supervisors (contact Peter Loosmore on 01747 854355).
