Ford End Watermill Ivinghoe

Buckinghamshire's only working Watermill with original machinery. Located in the village of Ivinghoe in Buckinghamshire, right on the border with Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.

This little mill, recorded in 1616 but certainly very much older, was in use until 1963. Restored by volunteers, and now maintained and run by Ford End Watermill Society, it is the only remaining working watermill in Buckinghamshire with original machinery. It retains all the atmosphere of a small farm mill of the late 1800's.

Stoneground wholemeal flour is on sale during milling demonstrations.

Schools and other parties are very welcome.
