Hutton’s Mill, Birmingham

A Wind powered Corn mill and Paper mill in the historic county of Warwickshire, England.

The mill was constructed c. 1759, for Mr William Hutton, who originally had the mill built to serve as a paper mill. After the paper milling proved to be unsuccessful, it was switched to corn milling. This endeavour also failed and the mill was sold in 1762 to a Mr Josiah Honeybourne, who used it for brass polishing.
