Offchurch Bury Mill

Description of this historic site

Offchurch Bury Mill, the site of a watermill for which there is documentary evidence from the Medieval period, and which was probably still in use in the Post Medieval period. A grooved sluice and traces of watercourses survive. The location is to the south of Floodgate Spinney.

Notes about this historic site

1 One of two probable mill sites in Offchurch. Three mills are recorded in 1279. In 1585 two mills are mentioned but one of them had disappeared by 1702. Traces of watercourses are visible.
2 There are still traces of the mill at the above grid reference. The river is diverted at this point and passes through a four-arched sluice, which still has remains of wooden gateposts on the N side. There are grooves in the sluice on the S side, where the waterwheel used to be.
