watermills Access to interior of Clock Mill, Bromley By Bow

Although House Mill at Three Mills, Bromley By Bow is regularly open to the public, the adjacent Clock Mill is largely converted to offices, and hence has no public access. However, Copthorn Homes are currently building a block of apartments called Urban Island on the River Lea just north-east of House Mill, and have taken a ground floor suite of offices within Clock Mill to market the development. Thus for a while at least, it's possible to enter the Clock Mill to visit the sales office. Within the office area there are few reminders that you are in a mill, but in the lobby just by the entrance a pit wheel, upright shaft and spur wheel, together with some tentering gear is preserved as a feature, spotlit with coloured lighting.
