Kings Langley Mill, Kings Langley

Poster Image

A watermill and roller flour mill in the historic county of Hertfordshire, England.

This is likely to be the site of the mill at Kings Langley mentioned in the Domesday book. In 1763 it passed to the Surrey family and in 1788 to the Toovey family. In 1894 a steam engine and roller mill plant were installed, and later the waterwheel was replaced with turbines. The mill ceased milling flour for bread in 1938 and became a feed mill. It was demolished in 1978
