The Mill is set in the village of River on the outskirts of Dover, both the Mill specifically and River in general are well worth a visit. It's definitely not a 'boring' educational type attraction and we've had a lot of positive feedback over the years we've been running this feature. It's really a piece of living history; part community project - part museum. If you've visited the attraction we'd welcome your feedback.
Mills have been present here since the 13th century, the site contains all the natural element needed for a thriving water mill. The current mill was erected in 1812 to meet the needs of the large number of troops stationed in Dover and East Kent during the Napoleonic Wars. The building ceased to operate as a water mill just over 100 years ago. A seventeen year project to restore the Mill began In 1973.
The Mill is a work in process and the restoration work continues up to the current day. There are frequent fund raising events throughout the year. The Mill cafe still sells a number of items made with Crabble Flour).It takes a huge effort to keep the Mill going, the public hire of the facilities is just one way that the project can be supported.
Wheelchair access to ground floor and café.
