Maiden Newton Mill, Nr Dorchester

Location
Grid reference: SY 596 977
OS sheet: 194
Postcode: DT2
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.
