Burton Mill, Petworth, West Sussex

Burton Mill

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’s heritage water-powered milling machinery has been restored to working order.

Burton mill is open to visitors on the Sunday of National Mills Weekend in May and the National Heritage Weekend in September. See Open Days for more information.

Burton Mill Flour

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