This ancient watermill, set in the artisan quarter of Lyme Regis, 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 history guides, who mill stoneground wholemeal flour every day, and keep this special place open for everyone to enjoy.

Nestling around a cobbled courtyard, these restored mill buildings house a working flour watermill, as well as art galleries, a café, a silversmith, a seamstress, a pottery,seaweed art, a design agency and a micro-brewery.
