Mapledurham Watermill is the last commercially working watermill left on The River Thames .There has been a mill at Mapledurham for over 1000 years and it is mentioned in The Domesday Book. The current structure dates back to the time of the English Civil War and it is still producing flour to this day which is available to purchase in the mill gift shop which will be open after your tour.

You will also be able to see the impressive  Archimedes Screw thread Turbine located next to the mill which produces electricity from the river flow

St Margarets Church  is a beautiful 14th century English country church with a fascinating history involving religious division and royalty. The church  is still very active and holds regular services , weddings and christenings accompanied by the church bells.



The miller and his wife will be delighted to share their passion and enthusiasm for this hidden part of England and look forward to your visit. The miller will be ready to greet you on your arrival and will explain the format for the afternoon. The tour of the church and watermill with the turbine will last for about an hour and will be presented in an informative and rather entertaining way. This will allow time to browse around the traditional gift shop before moving on to the tearoom for refreshments.The scones are freshly made with the flour from the watermill by the millers wife (as it should be).

Then when all are relaxed and refreshed it is time to bid farewell and hope to see you again soon.      


Please Note  

Although there are a limited number of seats available in the mill,during the tour there is an amount of walking and standing involved
