Stotfold Mill - Bedfordshire

According to the Domesday Book, there were four mills in Stotfold some 1000 years ago. Now there is one, and that only because local volunteers decided the history was too great to lose after a huge fire destroyed the mill in 1992.

It is testament to those committed to the rebuild and refurbishment that the mill today reflects how it would have been 100 or more years ago, but that took around 14 years to achieve.

In addition to the mill, the area has been turned into a nature reserve. Access to the nature reserve is unrestricted, but it is wise to check the opening times of the mill. It wouldn't be a wasted journey, because of the nature reserve, but it is rewarding when both can be combined.
