Marden Mill

Restoration of this unique Listed mill complex presented challenges on a number of levels. The buildings were virtually derelict and had not been touched since 1975.  The mill race was dry and remedial work was needed to the nearby river channel and the site carried SSSI status.

The scheme created a modern home from the miller’s house. A guest annex from the bakery. The dairy was restored and a new oak-framed thatched barn was built to house an indoor pool.

Sensitive collaboration with all those involved was essential throughout. Repairs and fitting out were planned carefully in parallel with the water channel works undertaken by the Environment Agency and Natural England.

Successfully restored, the buildings now accommodate homes of character in this special setting and as a result the water flows once again through the mill race.
