watermills Cricklepit Mill restoration funding

The restoration of Cricklepit Mill in Exeter is back on track after Exeter City Council agreed to provide an additional £35,000 to the project.

The foundations of the mill are dated to 1220, though the present building which dates from 1529 was badly damaged by fire in 1999. After an initial contribution of £45,000, the council also agreed to pay £55,000 when Devon Wildlife Trust, which is buying the building from the Guinness Trust, took over the mill. Since the plans were drawn up for this work, which includes restoring the waterwheels, costs have increased by £70,000, which will be split between the Council and the Trust.
