“Our adults’ bread-making workshop was particularly popular - in fact we had to turn away bookings - and the participants all found it fun and informative.

“Whilst entries into the competitions were a little disappointing, we hope to build on this and other aspects of the event next year, with more exhibitions and workshops on offer.”

Heatherslaw Cornmill is open daily until early November.
