Exwick Mills, Exeter
This was an old watermill site originally known as St Andrew's Priory Mills. In 1886 the watermill then standing was joined by a five sack an hour roller mill plant, powered by a Poncelet waterwheel from the Bodley Foundry. The older watermill continued in use for animal feed and its waterwheel also powered wheat cleaning machinery in the roller mill. The mill later became derelict.
