One of the best parts of our “job” is the “commute” to “work”. Driving the North Norfolk Coast Road every Friday to @deepdalefarm, takes us through some of the most beautiful villages and countryside in Norfolk.
Watching these landscapes change through the seasons and being a stone’s throw from the sea is a real treat.
We feel very lucky to work at Deepdale, which is not only one of the best campsites in the country, it is also a farm, producing, amongst other crops, a significant amount of wheat.
On Thursday I am going to Letheringsett water mill to have some of this wheat milled.
Letheringsett is the last fully working water mill in Norfolk. Situated on the River Glaven, it dates back to the Doomsday Book of 1086. Not much has changed in the methods which are used since then.
Harnessing the power of the river to stone grind the wheat into flour is a pleasure to see.
Excited to say that this flour will then be used to make our pizza dough, and be available to Deepdale customers.
