Hayle Mill, Maidstone
Although much of this paper mill complex has been converted to housing recently, it still represents the most important survival in the valley. The buildings are dominated by the long wooden paper-drying loft, and the core of the mill has become a museum. Here can be seen the waterwheel, the beaters it drove, and other historic machines and equipment. The internal waterwheel could be operated as overshot or high breast, according to the level of water in the pond.
