Great fun walking through the mill during the holidays with local producers selling their wares. A young man gave a brilliant explanation of the workings of the mill...we plan to come back for a summer visit!

An excellent tour of the old paper mill covering the history of paper making over the centuries. It was fascinating to see how paper was made from rags and bones. Excellent young guide, very good value, well worth the visit
