Save Winchester City Mill! Due to significant flood damage during the heavy floods over the winter of 2013 and 2014, the mill suffered significant damage; with much of the building inundated by the main flow of the river.

“We need to raise £125,000 to carry out essential repairs or City Mill will have to close. We can only achieve our fundraising goals with your generous support. To help us reach our targets, we’re hosting a range of events and special moments over the coming months.”

The weight of water posed a very real threat to the building’s walls.

Dating back well over a thousand years, Winchester City Mill lies in the heart of this medieval city and has, until now, weathered the course of time. However, following recent flood damage, Winchester is at risk of losing one of its most historic properties. We’re determined to protect the mill and safeguard its future, but the only way we can achieve our goal is with your help.

For centuries this ancient mill, the oldest working watermill in Britain, has been an integral part of Winchester’s heritage. From its early Anglo-Saxon origins right up until the present day, it’s stood the test of time.

City Mill was restored back to full working order in 2004. Since then, in addition to producing their own flour and demonstrating traditional milling techniques to hundreds of thousands of visitors, the mill has become a thriving destination for families, offering practical baking demonstrations as well as learning opportunities for visiting schools.
