A farm charity near Peterborough has been awarded nearly a million and a half pounds in lottery cash to restore a water mill to its former glory.

Managers at Sacrewell Farm say they're delighted the lottery has recognised the importance of their project.

The Farm charity is providing another £300,000 for the project which will also see flour ground in the mill used in an on site bakery.

It's hoped the restoration of this Grade Two listed building will in itself be of interest to visitors.

The scheme will begin next spring and could take up to three years to complete.
