Bromham Mill
Bromham Mill
Disused gearing set. The wheel behind was removed and never replaced (undershot), it has been like this since the 1970s. The wheel, even though undershot seemes to have been fed by a very strong flow and may be the reason for a third stone set being added.
Bromham Mill
The current building is a 18th/19th century rebuild of a mill sited on a small spur of the Great River Ouse. There has been a building here since Saxon times. Commercial production ceased from the late 1930s, sadly a fire took hold in 1974. Thankfully Bedfordshire County Council bought the building and restored it, its now open for free on a regular basis.
Inside is a breastshot wheel capable of powering two stones. The site of the second wheel can be seen along with the former gearing and stones for this wheel. Upstairs are several milling exhibits along with an art gallery.
