Mills of the Wandle

Notes on the Wandle Mills

Wandle Mills MapLocal researcher Peter McGow (he insists he is not a historian, but we can't see the difference) has been kind and generous enough to deposit with us his Notes on the Mills of the Wandle.

We are happy to publish these here. They set out the 42 sites (and 7 ancillary non mill sites) where a mill, or group of mills, stood and was worked by the waters of the Wandle

We can now test our standard list of the industries of the Wandle:

 

 

 

 

  • Corn
  • flour
  • fulling
  • dyewood/Brasil wood
  • gunpowder
  • copper
  • oil/oilseed,
  • leather
  • paperboard
  • chocolate
  • iron
  • paint
  • varnishes
  • oilcloth
  • fireworks
  • snuff
  • felt and fibre
  • calico
  • cloth printing
  • brewing/beer
  • cress/watercress
  • lavender
  • herbs

Peter's notes are dated to 2005.
