Full Description

Possibly shown on (1), but not on Sanderson.
This was a small flour mill in use by 1725. Daniel Drury was here in 1788. A lease of 1794 has a diagram showing the mill with a dam where Drury's Viaduct later crossed the river, the mill being in Vicar's Close. After the erection of Field Mill and the dam improvements the water backed up and at one stage Drury's mill was moved upstream. No remains ae obvious now though there are possible metal paddle slides in the river where Drury's Viaduct used to be. (2)
Grid ref is for site of weir and sluices at the end of Drury's Dam on (3).
