The Stotfold Watermill has the widest overshot waterwheel in the country!
It is also the only working mill left in Stotfold and is a grade II listed!
The incredible water wheel is a 4.4 metre wide overshot corn mill waterwheel.
The Mill was fully restored after being burnt down on 15 December 1992. It is currently open to the public with a tea room on alternate weekends in season (March to October) and on special event weekends.
It stands on the River Ivel and is one of only 4 mills in Stotfold. Nobody is certain of the exact date, but it is likely that a watermill has stood on the site of the current Stotfold Mill beside the River Ivel for over a thousand years!
The Mill is in safe hands now, it’s cared for by the Stotfold Mill Preservation Trust – check out their website HERE!
Brilliantly, the the mill is a working mill and you can watch the machinery in action as well as enjoy their lovely tea room. In addition, they also boast a beautiful nature reserve!
