Cafe serving teas & light refreshments. Now the turbine-powered roller mill can be seen in operation.

Primarily used to grind barley in its day Mangerton Mill was powered by a wheel measuring 12 feet in diameter and 4 feet wide. Made from cast iron and solid oak the wheel is still one of the mills main features. Originally made from local sandstone, Mangerton has seen numerous renovations with the most recent in 1986 when restoration began to bring it into full working order. There is a scenic walk that takes you alongside the river where trout fishing is also available.
