Unique in shape and unique in origin, Waveney Mill has Robert Clarke – a Victorian farmer, miller and baker – to thank for its location. Situated close to the idyllic tranquillity of the Norfolk Broads where the river Yare scythes its way through the wheatfields of Norfolk towards Norwich and beyond, and yet having immediate access to the waterways of the world from Yarmouth’s ancient harbour.
For over 140 years Waveney Mill has stood proudly on the banks of the river Yare, at the centre of Waveney Valley, an area rich in wheat cultivation with a history stretching back to Saxon times.
Since pasta became the staple of the British diet in the 1960s, mills across the UK endeavoured to create the best wheat. Durum wheat, rarely seen milled in the UK, is an essential part of Waveney Mill’s pasta, a constant ingredient throughout generations of pasta recipes which has led to the pasta we have today.
Beyond the great flavour, the near century-long adaptation and innovation of classic pasta has resulted in the four fun shapes in our core range. Try Waveney Mill today!
