NELSTROPS HAVE BEEN MAKING THE FINEST QUALITY FLOURS IN CHESHIRE FOR OVER 190 YEARS…
In 1820, aged 19 years old, William Nelstrop crossed the Pennines from the family’s farm in Ackworth, Yorkshire and founded Nelstrops flour millers in Stockport, Cheshire where the mill still stands today.
From delivering flour by horse and cart, receiving sacks of grain along the Stockport canal and milling under steam power, the Nelstrops mill has lived through local history. Its traditions live on, and is still proudly run today as an independent family business by the sixth generation of the Nelstrop family.
