Burton Mill, Petworth, West Sussex

The present Mill building dates from around 1780, although mills and forges have exploited the spring water from the Downs for at least 800 years.

The mill has been restored to working order using traditional water-powered milling machinery.

Burton Mill Flour

We are now regularly milling wholemeal and white bread flour from locally grown wheat. 1.5kg bags are available from all our local village shops – See Contacts for a list of stockists.

Take a tour of Burton Mill. This short video gives a little of its history and shows some of the working machinery.

Now take a virtual 360° tour of Burton Mill and other important Petworth heritage sites, introduced by Lord Egremont. These videos and panoramas were produced by the Petworth Heritage Partnership with funding generously provided by South Downs National Park Authority
