Visitor attraction in Old Buckenham

Going up the Mill
It has been National Mills Weekend and Old Buckenham Mill was open to the public this afternoon. At times they were queuing  to get in and then waiting to start the climb up the stairs and ladders to the higher floors.
There were three guides on duty to show the parties of adults and children how flour used to be made in years gone by. Several of the visitors were local people who have walked or driven by the Mill many times but had never been inside.
When the tour was finished there were goody bags for the children, including their own personal windmill, and the chance to enjoy drinks and homemade cakes in the afternoon sunshine.

The Mill will next be open on Sunday 10 June from 1pm to 4pm. If you missed this opportunity why not put the date in your diary. Come along and see what is inside that big brick tower near the Green.
