The House Mill


Originally built in 1776 but destroyed by fire in 1802 and quickly rebuilt, the House Mill was part of the Three Mills Distillery. It had 4 water wheels powered by the water or the tide, which operated 12 pairs of millstones. It was the largest tide mill in the country and continued to operate until the Blitz in 1940. Building restored in 1997. Restoration of the water wheels and machinery is planned.
