Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, many attractions are closed and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events.

Pakenham Water Mill 2021

18th century watermill, the last working watermill in Suffolk, is now owned by the Suffolk Building Preservation Trust. Water from Pakenham Fen collects in the beautiful mill pond to turn the 16ft high iron waterwheel that drives the mill stones which turn the wheat into flour. In the former miller’s house next door you can see the old kitchen with its 18th century brewing vat and bread oven.
