Our traditional watermill is working again - milling delicious stoneground wholemeal flour. The Mill and its cafe and bakery are open around the year - come and see us and watch our waterwheel turning.
Restored in 2011 as part of the BBC's Village SOS TV programme, Talgarth Mill is a thriving community enterprise at the heart of the quaint town of Talgarth in the Brecon Beacons National Park in Mid Wales. Our watermill is just an hour away from Cardiff and is open six days a week throughout the year - it’s a great place to visit for a morning or afternoon and is only just down the road from Hay on Wye, the famous book town.
There’s something for everyone – you can take a guided tour with one of our volunteer guides and hear the full story of the watermill and its renovation. Alternatively you can wander round in your own time – there’s plenty to see and find out about. Children can even have a go at making their own stoneground flour using our hand-driven mill and learn about where flour and bread comes from.
We mill three or four times a week – you may well catch us in action, but we always have the machinery turning and we always have plenty of our lovely stoneground flour and wholemeal bread kits for sale.
If you allow enough time, you’ll be able to start or finish your visit with lunch or tea in our bakery café, The Bakers' Table – in 2014 they won the regional competition of ITV’s Best Bakery Award – and Gold at the World Bread Awards in London. Don't miss us!
