Sturminster Newton Mill (Print)


Sturminster Newton Mill is one of a series of ancient flour mills built on the River Stour. Although it is thought that there may have been a mill on this site in Saxon times, the first record is contained in the Domesday Book of 1086, which mentions four mills in the Sturminster area.  Until the turn of the 20th century Sturminster Newton Mill was powered by a pair of water wheels working side by side which drove four sets of stones. In 1904 the mill was upgraded and the two water wheels were replaced with a single water turbine. The Mill was restored in 1980 and is now a museum.

I am a Cornish artist who has spent many years developing my unique style of painting with acrylics so that today my work is instantly recognisable. I feel lucky that the hobbies which I enjoy in my free time contribute towards my intense enthusiasm for painting. The photographs I take whilst walking and kayaking become the reference material for my work. I am so fortunate to live in such a beautiful county, surrounded by the sea with so many inland waterways - truly inspirational.
