Corn Watermills of the National Trust in England (2019)  

ISBN 9780955150166

This 75 page hardcover book measures 210mm x 210mm.
It has 25 John Brandrick drawings and 120 colour photos. 

Due to radical technological changes in the way flour was produced at the end of the 19th century; traditional corn watermills could not compete and very quickly fell into serious decline. An enormous number were lost to decay or converted into residential properties; others were put to other uses. Very few working mills remain.

Luckily, the National Trust had the foresight to protect and preserve 19 English water-powered corn mills which are regularly open to the public. Many are working and producing stoneground flour.

The aim of this book is firstly to overview the basics of flour production using water power and millstones. It then goes on to describe the history and main features of interest of each of the 19 English corn watermills in the National Trust collection.  It is hoped that the reader will be encouraged to visit some or all of the mills, when they are open, and gain an insight into our past industrial heritage.

Corn Watermills of the National Trust in England is priced at 15.75
+ 4.00 UK postage & packing charge.
