Eric Griffith was born in London in 1901 but moved to the North East and when he retired in 1961 he began to research the local watermills of Northumberland.  He was accompanied on many of his visits by Ken Major and together they catalogued most of the county’s mills.  Eric died in 2000 at the age of 99 but left behind a carefully typed manuscript detailing his visits to and research on most of Northumberland’s mills.  The manuscript was never published but selected entries are being added to this site on a section dedicated to his work.  See the page Eric Griffith Research within the Mill Research section
