On the River Glaven sits the last remaining fully
functioning working watermill in Norfolk built in 1802. The mill has
working demonstrations and tours. You can see the miller and his staff
making flour using traditional methods, whilst giving a running
commentary. Helpful staff are always on hand and are happy to answer any
questions. Eleven types of flour are produced, ranging from the
best-selling unbleached, untreated white, to organic wholewheat
stoneground and the rare Spelt flour. These flours are sold locally to
local bakeries, healthfood shops, hotels and teashops and at the Mill
Shop on site.

At the north end of the High Street near Holt's church is a Pineapple Obelisk, which is reputed to be a gatepost from Melton Constable Park. This was relocated to Holt and therefore the mileages inscribed on the column are said to be wrong for Holt.
