Bourne Mill, Brimscombe
Bourne Mill, Brimscombe
A woollen manufacturing site probably dating back to the 17th century but rebuilt in the early 19th century. The site is very constrained by the River Frome, Thames & Severn Canal and the Great Western Railway Viaduct. In addition to textiles, the site was variously used for flock and walking stick manufacture. The site is now in multiple occupancy. This view shows how the mill is indeed constrained by the railway viaduct. It is possible that the mill needed some 'adjustment' to accommodate the iron horse.
