About Pakenham Water Mill

The 18th Century Pakenham Water Mill is Suffolk's oldest working water mill and is now owned by the Suffolk Building Preservation Trust. 

The mill offers a unique day out in the heart of the Suffolk countryside and our friendly guides show visitors how the mill works, how sacks are hoisted to the top of the mill, the 1904 Blackstone oil engine and much more besides. 

For almost 1,000 years millers have used the simple technology of water power to produce stone ground flour from locally grown wheat and freshly ground flour is available to buy in the mill's gift shop. 

Enjoy a circular walk around the pond, past the orchard before visiting the Mill Tea Room for delicious food and drinks. 

Group visits welcome. 

Pakenham Water Mill is open March to September.
