A certain privilege is felt when working on such an historic local landmark building such as this beautiful Grade two listed Watermill, during its lifetime the Mill offered work directly and indirectly to thousands of local people over a period of hundreds of years, having a family history local to the area dating back to the 17C its quite likely some of my ancestors benefitted from the economy of the Mill maybe some worked in or on the Mill as I am now.
The Exterior Painting was completed in the Summer of 2021, Weatherboards Windows Gables and Doors were finished in traditional Oil Based White Gloss keeping in form of how the building would have originally been finished, an interesting video showing an early renovation of the Mill can be found here “The Mill’s life”

This geometric feature wall was created by my daughter during the UK lockdown, like many people during this period decorating projects became quite popular and ours was partly instigated by the fact that my three children all decided to swap bedrooms ! More feature wall ideas can be seen here.
