watermills Watermill Theatre Newbury, Berks is up for sale

As its name suggests, the Watermill Theatre in Newbury, Berkshire is housed in a converted watermill. Now that its theatrical owners, the husband and wife team of Jill Fraser and James Sargant, are looking to retire, the theatre is up for sale, at around £1.7M.

The brick mill, on the River Lambourn, dates from about 1820, and was converted to a theatre which seats 220 well over 20 years ago, though some remnants of the milling heritage including the mill race and wheel were retained. As a theatre, the Watermill has become very influential, with many shows transferring to the West End, and on to Broadway as well.
