watermills Beard Mill, Oxfordshire

The Independent has an article on Beard watermill, Oxfordshire, entitled A river runs through it. I'm not sure if this is part of a deliberate series of articles linked with rivers, or simply that this title has been reused for a number of other articles in the Independent over time.

The article describes the work done by owners Philip and Victoria Basil in converting Beard watermill. The mill has a live water supply, (it straddles the river Windrush) and the part 16th, part 19th century buildings are described as retaining "mill pulleys" (whatever they may be!) The architects were Berman Guedes Stretton, who have more details on the project, which seems to show that it is now devoid of machinery.
