Pakenham Water Mill

Pakenham Water Mill is one of Suffolk's hidden gems situated in an AONB close to Bury St Edmunds.

Pakenham is unique in Britain as it has both a water mill and a windmill. Pakenham water mill is on a Domesday site where, for almost a thousand years, millers have been using the simple technology of water power to produce stone-ground wholemeal flour from locally grown wheat. Now owned by the Suffolk Building Preservation Trust, a team of dedicated volunteers continues the tradition.

You can see the 16 foot high iron water-wheel in action and our guides will show you how the mill works. Next door in the Miller's House you can see the historic brewing vat and bread oven in the kitchen, and in the shop you can buy wholemeal flour ground at the mill.

Souvenirs, ice creams, etc are also on sale. Tearoom open at same times as mill.
There is a picnic area, a beautiful setting with excellent opportunities for photography, sketching and painting - or just to enjoy the view!

Open to the public, the watermill is easily accessible by road or cycleway.

So come and enjoy a day out with a difference at the Pakenham Water Mill!
