Dockyard Sawmill and Turnbridge Mill
Dockyard Sawmill and Turnbridge Mill
Magnet Southerns is in the yard that was formerly owned by Jarratt, Pyrah and Armitage. This site is now a supermarket but back in 1976 it had a working stationary steam engine. I saw this run just once, its last time, on a Monday afternoon on the way home from school. Lots of people came in from the mill as it coasted down for the very last time and it was an emotional introduction to working steam. The big mill in the background is Turnbridge Mills, owned by John L Brierley.
