Visitors Information

How To Find Us

By train: The nearest station is Axminster, which is 15 minutes by bus or taxi.

By Bus: First Bus, route 31, runs between Axminster and Dorchester. The X53 Jurassic Coast bus runs between Axminster and Weymouth. 9A runs between Exeter and Lyme Regis. X52 runs between Exeter and Bridport.

By road: The Town Mill is in the centre of Lyme Regis DT7 3PU

There is no public parking at the mill, so the site is best approached on foot. However, the mill is only a few minutes’ walk from several car parks.

From the Woodmead Car Park on Hill Road, walk down the hill to the bridge over the River Lym and turn right onto the path between the river and the millstream. This Riverside Walk leads you straight to us.

From the Broad Street Car Park, use the steps at the back of the car park to walk straight over the footbridge into the Town Mill courtyard.

To avoid the footbridge and steps: follow Broad Street to the traffic lights at the bottom. Turn left into Coombe Street and continue for about 250 yards. Then take the first left into Mill Lane and you’ll see The Town Mill straight ahead.

When the Mill is open, you are able to view inside the Mill and visit all three floors including the working waterwheel. You can do this self guided and at your own pace. We have lots of information available on the history, restoration and current day working of the Mill and a volunteer Miller will often be available to talk to you during your visit and demonstrate our traditional flour milling process.

There is no charge for a self guided view of the Mill, we just ask for a donation to help us to keep the Mill running and the water wheel turning.

Come along to the Town Mill Shop & Mill entrance, located in our courtyard and one of our friendly volunteers will be on hand to book you in for a look around!


You have the unique opportunity to purchase our award winning wholemeal wheat, spelt and rye flours in our shop. Our delicious flour is milled regularly on site at The Mill and stoneground by our volunteer millers.

We also have a selection of easy carry flour gift packs, baking kits and Town Mill souvenirs including tote bags and aprons.

The Town Mill Shop is also run by volunteers and all proceeds go back towards keeping the Mill open and the running.

We look forward to seeing you at The Mill soon!
