In the early 19th century, Barham Lodge was a miller’s house and is now the only surviving element of the former Castle Mill. The Mill itself stood at the junction of what is now Nelson Street and Tingewick Road until it was destroyed by fire in the 1960’s.
The Mill itself was originally powered by a water mill, but was later upgraded to run by steam engine. There is an island to the north of you, just before the river bends left, and this is where the leat that fed the waterwheel was taken off the river.
Castle Bridge, alongside, was built in 1850 but had to be rebuilt in 2001. Not much of the original Castle Bridge remains.
