the E side of the river. Parking in estate office yard.
A small, 3-storey watermill with
two pairs of millstones and an iron low breast-shot waterwheel. It ceased work
in the early years of the 20th Century. In 2005 it was given a
‘light-touch’ restoration, so that it is now in working order and retains a very
high proportion of its original machinery. Owned by the National Trust.”
