Bures Water Mill

Bures Water Mill
Situated on the Nayland Road at the entrance to Claypits Avenue, the first recorded mill at this site has been dated at 1190. The current timber framed mill house was erected in 1640 and extended in 1820. The River Stour opened to navigation in 1715, which enabled barges to transport European wheat upstream from Mistley.

Cornelius Hitchcock purchased the mill in 1875 and another at nearby Wormingford in 1879. He also owned mills at Rattlesden and Fingringhoe. His greatest technical achievement was switching from stone grinding to the Hungarian system of roller flour milling.
