We love history and learning about our local area. We wanted to share some local history that we know you will enjoy! Sindlesham Mill was a water-powered corn mill is located on the River Loddon near Sindlesham. It operated from the second half of the 19th century until 1967.
In the early 20th century Sindlesham Mill was owned by the Simonds family. The tenant Mr. Howkins bought the mill in 1918 for £5000. In 1919 Mr Howkins sold it to brothers Richard and Frank Over, who had actually been running Sandhurst steam mill since 1912.
The brothers modernised the mill and managed to make milling pay until the slump in the mid-twenties and serious competition from larger mills. We know the saying ‘history repeats itself’, unfortunately, small businesses are still being forced to close down.
In 1962 the business was taken over by Associated British Foods, and the mills were run by Richard’s sons, Denis and Raymond, until 1967, when Sindlesham Mill closed and was sold by auction.
Sindlesham Mill House has been converted to a pub and the mill buildings have been converted to a hotel and conference centre.
