The Bridge Mill

The Bridge Mill

The Bridge Mill is a 16 acre smallholding situated alongside the River Tamar in the centre of the village. The mill site is listed in the Domesday survey of 1086, while the present building dates from around 1875. This building and its surviving machinery have been sympathetically restored to working order, with flour being ground by water power once more.

The smallholding is managed along organic lines with positive management for wildlife. It has a range of traditional farm buildings; tame livestock including sheep, pigs, hens and ducks; 600 yards of frontage to the river Tamar; three very different ponds; an area of Culm grassland; organic gardens growing fruit, vegetables, dye plants and a range of cottage garden plants; and circular walks offering lovely views around the points of interest. The Bridge Mill has been designated as a County Wildlife Site as well as a key Devon Dragonfly site.
