Woodnewton Watermill (c.1904)

A c.1904 image showing the old “Conegar” watermill at Woodnewton.

Flour was produced at Conegar Mill for a number of years but sadly, due to high maintenance costs and millwright charges, things began to deteriorate. A few years into the 20th century (c.1906) the mill stone ceased to turn and what had been a good little ‘undershot water mill’ was lost forever.

The building still survives in a beautiful setting on a public footpath out of the village, opposite the church ….. well worth a visit !
