Bakers, Makers and Brewers Fair 2015 celebrated White Mill’s rural heritage and the important role it played within the life of its community specifically during WW1. Today these traditional crafts have been revived and we witness the prevalence of the hand-made in contemporary art, food, drink and home décor. This inaugural fair was part of Codename: Joined Up’ WW1 Commemorative project by DMAG and DAD with artist Cathy Rogers.
White Mill Rural Heritage Centre is based on Ash Road, Sandwich and is a 150 year old wooden smock Windmill.
