Coppermill on Coppermill stream
The Coppermill on Coppermill Stream is adjacent to the East Warwick Reservoir in the LB Waltham Forest part of the Lea Valley Park. A mill has stood here since the earliest times when corn was first ground for flour, then at various periods gunpowder and linseed for oil. The mill was purchased by British Copper Company in 1808. The smelted copper was brought to the mill from Landore, Swansea, Wales via the Thames by barge. The copper ingots were used to produce penny and halfpenny tokens. Production ceased in 1857. The mill was purchased by the East London Waterworks Company in the late 1850s and the mill was modified to drive a water pump to assist in the building of reservoirs on nearby marshland. Today the mill is owned by Thames Water (Wikipedia 2015).
