Fodor's Expert Review Little Salkeld Watermill

Penrith Factory Fodor's Choice

This fully functioning stone-ground flour mill is well worth a visit for its delicious baked goods and for a tour of the fascinating workings of the mill itself. There's been a mill here since the 13th century, and the current structure was built in 1760. Tours are officially self-guided (take an information sheet), but the miller will probably take a break to show you around. Just up the road is the Bronze Age stone circle of Long Meg and her Daughters. According to folklore, the 51 stones (27 of which are still upright) were a coven of witches turned to stone by a Scottish wizard.
