TO mark Carr's 125th anniversary at its Maldon mill we're taking a looking into the past through its old photos.

This autumn Carr’s Flour Mills Ltd is celebrating 125 years at the Carr’s Maldon mill.

The business also unveiled a brand new gold liveried lorry and the staff at the mill came together to mark this moment for generations to come. 

The mill has attracted generations of families who work there, solidifying the mill’s historic presence in the community.

Its been on the banks of the River Chelmer since 1896 - enduring two world wars and more recently the coronavirus pandemic.

Though its one of Carr's' smallest mills part of the Maldon base's long-term success is its effort to keep things local and continue the traditions of the mill.

For example the business still source 70 per cent of its wheat within 30 miles of the mill.

Maldon and Burnham Standard:

The community spirit in Maldon has been "invaluable", bosses say, over the past 18 months of the pandemic especially after Carr's saw an increase in demand for flour at the beginning of 2020.

And the business gives back to the community as well.

Last April Carr's Flour Mills Ltd made a donation to the community coronavirus response coordinated by the Maldon and District Community Voluntary Service.
