A rich history
Combining History with technology, art with science
Dandridge's Mill was built in 1820 as a water-driven silk mill; the silk originally milled by Napoleonic prisoners. In 1839 when the silk trade collapsed it became a grain mill. It continued operating until the Second World War when it was converted into an engineering works and used for secretly building parts of the Mosquito Bomber aircraft. Later still it was used as a sculptor's studio. In this latest incarnation, it has become one of the most desirable residences in the area, with the mill's original water race still being harnessed for sustainable power.
