We have recently completed the restoration of Sarehole Mill’s historic bakehouse. Not only did we restore the existing bakehouse to its former glory but we have also developed a modern day bakery in the neighbouring building! Visitors can now enjoy delicious baked goods, including pizza, freshly made in our new onsite bakery!
