Directions to Callington Mill
The Callington Mill at Oatlands is working, living history. Built in 1837 and restored in 2010, the Lincolnshire tower windmill is the only working example of its type in the southern hemisphere. The restoration is a story in itself. Just amazing!
Callington Mill was built in the days of Oatlands being an important stopping place on the coach route from Hobart to Launceston and Port Dalrymple, with Oatlands being roughly halfway.
Not only does the Callington Mill look fantastic but of course it produces flour, with the two huge French-style burr millstones grinding wheat to supply flour to artisan bakers, restaurants and the general public. Capable of producing half to one tonne of flour an hour, wheat, rye and spelt flour are produced as well as rolled oats.
The Visitor Centre offers a number of tours of the Callington Mill complex as well as of the historic town of Oatlands. The Miller’s Way explores the complex as well as taking you to the top of the mill and explains the operations that take place on the five levels.
