watermills Wayside Inn Grist Mill,Sudbury, Mass renovations

The Wayside Inn Grist Mill in Sudbury, Massachusetts inspired the watermill logo that appears on Pepperidge Farm products - a company with around $1 billion annual turnover. The bakery firm used the mill (which was only built in 1929 by Henry Ford) to produce its flour between 1952 and 1967, and adopted it as its logo about 1963.

The mill needs a bit of renovation, and Pepperidge Farm are contributing $15,000 towards installing a roof and painting the water wheel.
