Jordans Mill Website
This historic Mill, home to the Jordan family for over 150 years, was revolutionary for its time and could be compared with the dawn of the internet age today. Milling was once a major industry in Bedfordshire with over 400 mills in the county alone. A fire at the mill in the late 1800s brought about the change from traditional stone milling to metal roller mills. This technological leap enabled the mill to increase production significantly and helped Jordans Mill to become one of the leading producers of flour in the region.
Visitors can discover for themselves the workings of the Flour Mill from behind a glass partition. Interactive displays and information bring the mill to life and provide an insight into the heritage of this significant mill and the family behind it. For a truly memorable visit, you can go into the working part of the Mill with one of our guides who have many tales to tell about the history, as well as the mechanics of Jordans Mill! There is also a garden, a shop and a café.
