A HISTORY OF WATER POWERED INDUSTRIES IN ESSEX
(Web site maintained by Bob Sier)

I have a long standing interest in water ways and the water mills they once powered. These web pages are the result of many years researching the water ways of the county Essex.

I am in the process of digitizing my records. The gazetter of mill sites will be up dated as and when time allows.
I am particlarily interested in obtaining old photographs of Essex water mills, to complete my records.

Please contact me for further information
