Mapledurham Watermill has always produced whole-wheat flour. This flour has much to commend it as it retains all its valuable fibre in the form of bran, the brown outer husk of the wheat, and all its proteins and vitamins, much of which lies in the lightly pinkish inner skin and in the wheat germ. The extraction processes to which modern white flours are subjected removes much of these valuable constituents.
Careful cool milling with our original French Burr millstones produces superb flour.
After your tour at Mapledurham you will have time to browse around the gift shop before making your way to The Coach House Tearoom where you will be served a traditional English cream tea with scones freshly made from our own flour, baked and served by The Millers Wife.
We hope you enjoy your visit!
