A working watermill and more in the heart of Lyme Regis ...

how to find us

Just minutes from the seafront and high street but reaching back 700 years in time, The Town Mill is a must for visitors.

Nestling around a cobbled courtyard, the restored mill buildings house a working flour mill, as well as art galleries, with a café, a milliner, a seamstress, a pottery with two wonderful potters working in its fug of heat and clay, a micro-brewery and a cheesemonger...

This ancient watermill, set in the artisan quarter of the town, was rescued from dereliction by local volunteers, through a ten-year restoration project. Today, the story of The Town Mill is recounted by volunteer millers and illustrates the history of England and its people.

"Exciting for the family and a lot to do. Staff were so friendly – wonderful." Visitor

"The miller made a wonderful job of making the history of The Town Mill come alive!" Visitor
