Although this is a free attraction I strongly recommend making a donation. On entering the mill we were greeted by a member of staff who offered us a long or short guided tour. We opted for the short tour which basically covered the ground floor. The history of the mill and the processes involved to get flour from the wheat was explained in enough detail to be understood without getting too deep. We were left to explore the remainder of the mill on our own. Good picnic spots close by.

Manderley on the Green

Reviewed By excobra_driver - Ottawa, Canada

It had been at least 10 years since I last played this course. We played south and central. For early Spring, the conditions were pretty good. Luckily, there hadn't been any recent rain. Otherwise, it appeared that a few holes could be wet under foot. A worthy location for a return visit.
