    Scope & contentThis is the story of the Bowman flour mills founded by James Bowman at Astwick in 1857. Investment in roller flour machines and leasing three more mills in Hertfordshire: West Mill, Hyde Mill and Ickleford Mill. This expansion ensured that the company grew and prospered. After the war, new technology, processing methods, such as heat-treated flour, and specialist products enabled the company to remain independent and grow in the face of stiff competition from the larger flour milling companies.
