Hockley Mill

Hockley Mill on the River Itchen is open during National Heritage weekend and by request.

In 2015 it will be open on Monday May 4th to take advantage of the FoKAB running day and on Sunday September 13th, both days 1100 to 1600

 


A three storey brick water mill with tiled roof built in 1803 and adjoining barn (now converted into houses).  The mill still contains a working iron Poncelet style waterwheel which drives an unusual horizontal timber mainshaft designed to primarily drive barn machinery.  Two pairs of stones remain and the mostly wooden machinery for their operation is intact although not used.

 

Hockley Mill is off the B3335 at its junction with Church Lane Twyford, 1km south of the B3335 M3 junction, and 1km north of Twyford.

John Brandrick has since he retired devoted considerable time and his great expertise in making 3D drawings to record the structure and machinery of mills. 

We are very lucky that he has visited Headley and Hockley mills and here are some of his exceptional drawings.  Please visit his website and his page on Hockley Mill  for more drawings.
