    Wanted to go and have a look after seeing photos of the place, it was better than I thought it would be and worth the 2 hour trip down there.
    A little history on the place (Found on another site)
    "The mill, which is mentioned in the Doomsday book, has had many incarnations. As a linen mill it processed flax and supplied canvas to the Royal Navy, but when industry declined it was developed into a foundry with a blast furnace and was one of the first places to make the new threshing machines in the West of England. It went on to build boilers, steam lorries and gas engines as well as gaining a reputation as a builder of water wheels. During the First World War Mills Bombs were produced here in vast quantities. After the Gasper dam burst upriver in the summer of 1917, much of the machinery was washed from the factory and it took a number of years for industry to restart on the site. When it did return in 1933 the factory entered its final phase as a dried milk processing plant and this continued up until its closure in 1998."
