Bourne Mill from the east
Bourne Mill from the east
I managed to sneak this shot from the alleyway that leads through from Bourne Road to Stalin Road. Taken in the evening - in rather tricky light - at a time when the National Trust property was closed.

An inscription on the south-facing gable dates the building to 1591. From the flamboyant style of the gables it is clear that it wasn't meant to be anything as mundane as a water-mill (the conversion came centuries later). Pevsner and others suggest that the building was originally a fishing lodge - presumably on the sporting estate of some well-to-do gentleman.
