CLOUGH MILL

0.0

The Clough Mill is a water mill that dates back to the early 19th century and is now sadly in a state of decay. The Clough Mill is located near the village of Williamstown and is one of the few surviving examples of a rural water mill in the county.

The Clough Mill was built around 1825 by the local landlord, John D’Arcy, who owned a large estate in the area. The mill was used to grind corn and oats for the local farmers and tenants, and also provided employment for some of the villagers. The mill was powered by a large water wheel that was fed by a stream that ran through the property. The mill had two sets of millstones, one for grinding corn and one for grinding oats, and also had a drying kiln where the grain was heated before milling.

The mill was in operation until the 1940s, when it was abandoned due to the decline of rural industry and the introduction of modern machinery. The mill gradually fell into ruin over the years.
