Rural – Jersey Country Life Magazine


More than 300 kilos of locally grown wheat will be transformed into stoneground flour at Le Moulin de Quétivel in St Peter’s Valley on Saturday 27th April.

Visitors to The National Trust for Jersey’s annual Heritage Milling Event can meet the miller and his wife, see the waterwheel in action, watch the milling process from start to finish and enjoy Jersey Wonders, homemade cakes and hot drinks in the small tearoom. There will also be the chance to buy bags of freshly milled stoneground flour made from Genuine Jersey wheat sourced from Le Tacheron, a sustainable farm and rare breed centre run by the Le Maistre family in Trinity.

Le Moulin de Quétivel is the only surviving watermill on the Island. The existing building dates from the 18th century however there has been a watermill on the site since 1309. Quétivel Mill was kept in continuous use for 600 years up until the early 1900s when steam power took over from water power.

The Mill was brought back into service during the Occupation of the Island by the Germans between 1941 and 1945. The building was burnt down in 1969 and restored by the Trust in 1974.

Le Quétivel will be open from 10am to 4pm (last entry 3pm) with free admission for Trust members, £4 for adults and £2 for children. Visitors are encouraged to bus, walk or cycle to the site as parking is limited to the Mill Pond Car Park to the north of the mill, about a 10-minute walk.
