FROM THE MILL
Keep up to date with everything that's going on at Jordans Mill and never miss a thing.
Christmas is fast approaching and there is no doubt that Christmas songs and carols will play a big part in our celebrations. While humming along to these jolly Christmas tunes many of us are unaware of their history. Christmas carolling seems a traditional and historical practice, but carols have not always been popular and were not always associated with Christmas. If you’re interested in discovering how our musical celebrations of Christmas developed over time then take a look at our Christmas timeline...
The Riverside Café at Jordans Mill is moving over to table service
It is important for us to offer the best customer experience to each and every person who visits the site.
In a previous message we communicated our Christmas and New Year opening and closing times. We also mentioned that in the New Year (2019), the Riverside Café would be closed on set days to help bring in a new table service system and get our staff ready to help us deliver it.
In November a donation was made to the Jordan Trust Mill museum. Russell Redfearn Walker, whose grandparents purchased products from the Mill, donated items which were used to make ‘Layer’s Mash’ a feed for poultry (Cecil Sale) and bread (John Walker & Sons).
Bill and Lindsay Jordan sat down with Russell to accept the donation and the families talked about the old Milling days, flour production and local connections.
Our impact on the environment and wildlife has never been more in the spotlight and the need to drastically change the pressures we are placing on the planet.
Having worked closely with farmers (for over three decades) endeavouring to increase the declining wildlife, Bill Jordan has ben monumental in setting up conservation grade (now called Fair To Nature).
I love Nature and know a great place where you can sit, have a coffee and relax. You might even catch a glimpse of the aquamarine flash across the top of the water as the Kingfisher passes.
This small bird can be seen on the Willow tree near the waterfall and occasionally sitting on the wooden outlets of the decking area looking for some tiny minnows or sticklebacks to eat.
Another visitor that I have seen at the Mill is a pair of Little Egrets. I have seen them strolling around by the water’s edge looking for lunch.
