The Crabble Mill is more than a museum - it is still a working corn mill and has been said to be one of the finest working mills in Europe.
 
Local records show there has been a mill at this location since the thirteenth century. The current mill building was constructed in 1812. It is six stories high with an enormous breastshot wheel driving five pairs of grindstones.
 
This mill closed in 1957 and gradually fell into disrepair. It was saved by the Crabble Corn Mill Trust (with funding from English Heritage, the Cleary Foundation and Dover District Council). The mill was reopened at Easter 1990.
 
There are six floors of exhibits and milling machinery and it is there that the process of turning wheat into flour is explained. Organic wholemeal flour is milled and is available for sale in the gift shop and the Farm Shop.
 
After your tour of the mill, why not visit the mill shop and purchase a bag of flour milled by the machinery you have seen working.
