Maiden Newton Mill, Nr Dorchester
Grid reference: SY 596 977
OS sheet: 194
In Maiden Newton, just off A356.
A large four-storey mill, with a recently restored wheel and mill race. No
machinery remains; at one time a
fulling mill and then a corn mill, which ceased working in the 1930's with the
wheel used to generate electricity. The internal machinery was then
removed and it was turned into a carpet mill.
Water Rights and Millers rights have been upheld by the High Court, so
restoration and use can now continue.
