Clyston Mill – Broadclyst

We held our SW Leaders Day in Broadclyst at the Victory Hall yesterday – at lunchtime some of us popped over to the NT’s Clyston Mill property in the village for a quick look around. It is a working flour mill and well worth a visit. The season this year is nearly over but it is open until Sunday week – NB – it is only open Saturdays to Wednesdays 1pm-5pm.
