A guide to artisan UK Flour Mills currently delivering

Find the essential ingredient for baking with this guide to UK flour mills across the UK.

Lockdown has driven us to literally live our best Great British Bake Off lives. Have you been whipping up banana bread, pancakes and loaves? Because I have.

Flour is rarer than gold dust. Even Attenborough is impressed when he spies the lesser spotted bread flour.

It took me three weeks to get one bag of flour and it was the last one on the shelf.

That’s when it hit me, I need to go direct to the source.

Not having any luck at the supermarket finding flour? Well, have I GOT YOU!

I have put together the little black book of artisan UK flour mills selling by region.

Here’s your guide to artisan flour mills delivering across the UK right now…

The little black book of flour mills

I don’t know about you but see as I can’t travel I’m sure as hell going to get my bake on. Hello carby comfort. Turns out the UK has a lot of mills. I mean, more than I ever realised.

I’ve listed as many as I could find and whether they…

  • Sell online
  • Deliver across the whole of the UK
  • Any important details – including changes during COVID 19 lockdown

If your mill isn’t on this list, let me know and I can add you in, either comment below or email me.

This is one BIG list.

To make it a little more manageable I’ve put the lists into a priority order, starting with the mills currently delivering across the UK, followed by regional mills and open or selling status.

Mills delivering across the UK

In alphabetical order, for fairness…

Full details of regional sellers and call and collect services can be found in the regional lists below.

I’m currently waiting on an order from Shipton Mill and have just got the email to say it’s on its way and I can’t wait for it to arrive.

All information was up to date as of 19 May 2020 and I will update this regularly or if any major COVID 19 lockdown changes are made.
