Where did it begin?
Waveney Mill has Robert Clarke – a Victorian farmer, miller and baker – to thank for its unique location. Situated close to the idyllic tranquility 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.
Through all these years, the vision – crafting quality pasta – is unchanged, although we have swapped the steam power of our founders for the latest environment and energy saving milling techniques.
Waveney Mill plays a unique role in the life of the nation, partnering with British wheat farmers to produce remarkable, quality pasta and semolina for everyone to enjoy.
