Town Mill, Sawbridgeworth
A watermill and roller flour mill in the historic county of Hertfordshire, England.
Built in the 18th century and rebuilt and converted to steam power in 1880, the mill was owned for many years by the Burton family. It originally had eight pairs of stones, and later was fitted with roller mills. A water turbine was introduced in 1904.
The mill was bought by Garfield Weston in 1962 and ceased work in 1970 before being burnt down in 1977.
