The Mill, Elstead

The story of this Mill at Elstead dates back as far as 1647. Set by a beautiful river in the village of Elstead, the building is set remotley off a sweeping driveway and surrounded by the green and pleasant landscape of Surrey. The original building burned down and that same year, the Mill had been occupied by Oliver Cromwell's roundheads.

Another chapter to the story is with it's connections to the military. In the 19th Century, it was acquired by the Appleton family and the 100 strong work force made braid for military uniforms. Which possibly explains why the Cupola on the roof was installed around that time – the bell was used to call people to work!

A place of history, the Mill was also used as a hospital during World War II. Visit the mezzanine level and you can see the graffiti scribblings left by recovering soldiers.
