Site Event/Activity record EEM14538 - 2014: HBR - Manor Mills, Roadwater
November 2011/August 2014
The site of Manor Mill, Roadwater, is thought to be of late medieval origin, the mill being built to grind grain for tenants in the south of the parish of Old Cleeve until the early 17th century. In the mid 19th century the site was developed for light industrial use, probably as a result of the local iron extraction industry and the building of a mineral railway down the valley, with corn milling and malting taking place alongside a workshop which was used for millwrighting and engineering. A sawmill was also set up outside the mill in the early 20th century. Although the waterwheel was removed some time ago, the primary gearing and two pairs of millstones remain in place.
