Watermill for BBC2 programme

Author: Emma Randle-Caprez

Please help! Calling all watermills needing restoration!

I am looking for a disused watermill which we can restore for our series, Tudor Abbey Farm, the follow-up series to Wartime Farm, for BBC2. We are hoping to base our farm in the Chichester area, so any mills local to here would be great, although of course beggars can’t be choosers!

My knowledge of watermills is currently limited, so I am not sure how much they changed over time, but we would need one that would fit with the Tudor (or earlier) period. The idea would be for the team to restore the watermill to working order as part of the programme. If you have a watermill that you think might fit this description, even if not the location, then please do make a suggestion, as I would love to hear from you!

Best wishes, and thank you very much!  Emma Randle-Caprez
