Eling Tide Mill

Eling Tide Mill

We are very disappointed to report that the sluice gate is causing us further problems and all milling has been suspended until further notice. This also means we will have no flour available for the foreseeable future. We are very frustrated by this further set back and apologise to all our customers. We will keep the website updated with progress.

VISIT ONE OF THE ONLY TIDE MILLS IN THE WORLD PRODUCING FLOUR DAILY IN A 900 YEAR OLD TRADITION

Eling Tide Mill is a water mill that harnesses the power of the tide to grind wheat into wholemeal flour.

Situated on the edge of Southampton Water beside the renowned New Forest, there has been a mill on the site for over 900 years.

It was abandoned in the 1940s, but had the good fortune to survive until it was restored between 1975 and 1980, at which time it re-opened as both a working mill, and a museum to this part of our industrial heritage. It is the one of the only fully working and productive tide mill in the United Kingdom producing flour as it had throughout the last Millennium and one of only a handful of mills in the entire world producing flour on a regular basis.
