The Ifield MillPosted: September 21, 2016 Filed under: Flowers, History, macro, Nature, photography, Roses | Tags: Buildings, close up, colourful, nature, outdoors, photography 3 Comments
Here are some more pics from my visit to the Mill. I’ve converted this one to a black and white image – it seems to suit this old Mill which dates back to the 1840’s. However – the first mention of a mill in Ifield was in 1274. I can’t quite make out from the Brochure exactly when the present [restored] Mill was built, but there are recorded mentioned owners throughout the 1600’s and 1700’s. Volunteers have done a wonderful job of restoring it from 1973 onwards , with the waterwheel being restored in 2008.
The next few pics are from the hedgerows along the path leading to the Mill.
Time to say au revoir and see you soon dv, Eileen
What was it u for?
Hi – so sorry for the ommission – the most important thing! Thanks for your interest. It’s a flour mill and the volunteers produce some flour now they’ve got the machinery workng. I believe every village that had water nearby (lakes/rivers etc) would have had their Mills/Millers to serve their own and other’s needs.
