‘Newark Mill Ripley Surrey’
by Bob Gale
(plus £1.50 shipping)
Until destroyed by fire in 1966, the 17th century Newark Mill was an imposing landmark on the River Wey close by Newark Priory. A mill had stood on this site since Anglo-Saxon times and its destruction, never to be rebuilt, was then, and still remains a great loss architecturally and historically. Containing information on water mills in general, this book is an important record of the history of Newark Mill in particular. It is liberally illustrated with detail drawings, maps and old photographs and also contains a list of millers from 1530 up to 1942.
