Burton Mill, Petworth, West Sussex

Hydro power generation was re-started in March 2017. Click the hydro power tab for more detail.

We are now regularly milling wholewheat flour from locally grown wheat. 500g and 1.5kg bags are available from Ted's at Heath End.

The present Mill building dates from around 1790, although mills and forges have exploited the spring water from the Downs for at least 800 years.

The millstones have been restored to working order and now produce Burton Mill wholewheat flour.

Grain bins in loft

The present layout of the bins dates from the 1930s though much older machinery can be seen.

 

The large pulley is part of a very old sack hoist. Above it is a more recent Archimedes screw used for delivering grain to the bins.
