Iffley, where the mill stood
Iffley, where the mill stood
In this view from the edge of the lock island, beside the footbridge to the village, the tree hanging over the water stands close to the site of the medieval water mill that calamitously burnt down in 1908. It was a grist mill meaning its purpose was to grind individual portions, or grists, of grain brought in by customers. Fire often started in mills from the heat generated by the grinding stones.
Across the bridge at the foot of Mill Lane there remains an old millstone and a small plaque recording the mill's situation, alongside Grist Cottage.
This part of the river was known for its eels.
