The Cricklepit watermill is a Grade II listed building, dating from the 17th or 18th century, with 19th-century machinery; it has an undershot waterwheel. The building was restored in the 1990s by the Devon Historic Buildings Trust, after it was damaged by fire. In 2004 it was bought by the Devon Wildlife Trust, with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Watch local history come alive as Devon Wildlife Trust start the ancient waterwheels turning to grind grain into flour using traditional milling methods. Volunteer millers will run milling demonstrations throughout the morning.
