TF 47 NW (south side)

2/13 Empire Mills


Water mill, now restaurant. Originally C18, largely rebuilt
early C19 and top storey in 1890 after fire. Colourwashed
brickwork, hipped pantile roof. 3 storey, 3 bay front with
planked door to ground floor, and above to both floors 3 small
glazing bar casements with painted brick arches. The mill was
formerly powered by an overshot water wheel which was replaced,
after the fire, by a turbine. The steel wheel and gearing remain
and the turbine is housed at the rear of the mill in a small
outshot with a tall brick chimney stack. This is the last
regularly worked water mill in Lincolnshire, but the water power
has not been used since 1977. Source: Neil R. Wright.
