A new book has just been published covering two of our Northumberland Mills. Waren Mill on the edge of Budle Bay and Spindleston Mill, a short distance inland, are considered in detail between the years of 1735 and 1914. The mills were part of the Greenwich Hospital Estates and have a strong link to the well known engineer John Smeaton. There is a huge amount of detail about the two mills and their passage from the Estate to the Short Family that were heavily involved in milling in the Berwick and borders area.
The book is available for £8 from the newsagent in Belford and Clarks in Bamburgh. Alternatively it can be purchased for £10 to be sent out. please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
