Barrow Gurney: Upper Barrow Mill
Barrow Gurney: Upper Barrow Mill
A public footpath runs past the property to Windmill Hill and Redwood Farm. In addition to three watermills the parish appears to have had two medieval or post-medieval windmills. Possibly the parish's proximity to Bristol created extra demand. Behind the buildings on the right, at roof level, can be seen the line of the former mill leat, which would have powered an overshot waterwheel by the side of the building in the middle of the group. Milling ceased sometime between 1910 and 1935
