Weare Tower Mill in Allerton

A wonderful photographic (RP) postcard showing the mill in Stone Allerton in a state of disrepair. This mill can be found on the road between Wedmore and Cheddar. Click image to enlarge.

A photograph of what was left of the Weare Tower Mill in Weare / Stone Allerton, Somerset, c.1910. Shortly after this photograph was taken the mill was converted into a private dwelling house and remains such today. Legend tells of a horse rider being thrown from his horse and killed after it was frightened by the whirling sound of the sails. The mill was last worked in 1880.

Compare this with a recent photograph of the same Allerton mill with attached house (taken from the opposite direction).
