The River Bovey

Gunpowder mill

One of three mills that were used in the manufacture of gunpowder in the 1890's. The gap in the building was for a waterwheel fed by a leat that fed the three mills in turn (this is the highest) and then flowed into Cherry Brook. All the buildings were spread out so as to limit damage in the event of an explosion.
