    We are currently renovating The Old Mill in Nether Warden and considering reinstating the waterwheel from the original Corn Mill. As part of this I am trying to research the history and ideally find any images from when the Mill was working. I have found reference to the Mill in a book published in 1825 so I know it predates that and from maps it looks like it was working mill in 1898 but by 1920 was disused. Any information or suggestions for sources would be very welcome.

    All help gratefully received.

    you may find some information at the Mills Archive, they appear to have (at least) some survey notes made in the 1960s and there may be photographs that haven’t been catalogued yet.

    sorry, the link I meant to provide doesn’t seem to have worked, but search for “Warden” at millsarchive(dot)org

    You might want to check with the owner/landlord of the Boatside Inn. I believe he had a collection of old photos of the area.

    Thanks again Pete – I know the Landlord (Matt) quite well will ask him.
