Bread Making at Bircham Windmill

Bread Making at Bircham Windmill

Chalkwell Coaches DayBreak to Bircham Windmill for Bread Making

Standing in the heart of Norfolk's undulating fields, Bircham Windmill now looks as it did over 100 years ago. Today, very few windmills are left, and Bircham Mill is considered one of the best still remaining. On arrival a ploughman’s lunch will be waiting for you before the highlight of the day where you have the opportunity to bake your very own loaf from scratch. Ingredients and inspiration are provided and you create your loaf. As your bread bakes there is plenty to see and do; visit the Film Room and enjoy a choice of 8 different films, they include a virtual tour of the mill, the original restoration, Wagg's bakery at Docking and local history films. Have a go with an original till. Can you work with pounds shillings and pence? Weigh your items on the scales, put in the total and the till drawer opens with a satisfying ring! Genuine old money inside for you to work out what is what. Or if you are feeling energetic climb the five floors of this beautifully restored windmill, see all the machinery in place and experience the views from the top.

Please Note: Should you wish to climb the windmill this is accessible by ladders only and you will need a good element of physical fitness.
