Fraggle Report~ Jordans Mill ~ July 2017

At the end of July I travelled down south to Bedfordshire to dog sit while my son went off to Amsterdam on holiday. For two of the days I stayed there I met up with my good friend Helen, who I’ve known forever, and we went off on our first trip, to visit Jordan’s Mill.

Situated on the banks of the River Iver, the mill was first mentioned in the Domesday book ย (a manuscript record of the “Great Survey” of much of England and parts of Wales completed in 1086 by order of King William the Conqueror). ย Bought later on in 1893 by the Jordan family, it then burnt down a year later, and was then renovated to become one of the most advanced flour mills of it’s time, which, apparently it still is. ย Apart from milling, they also have a lovely garden to wander around, and a nice cafe. more info at http://www.jordansmill.com

as you can see, it was a grey day, with occasional showers, but that didn’t stop us.

As well as the garden there is a woodland and wildflower section, which we went to look round first.

 

if you look at the tree trunks you can see a squirrel, he’d just been having a snack at his food station.

in Part 2 we’ll have look around the garden, so stay tooned ๐Ÿ™‚
