Huttleston Broughton, 1st Lord Fairhaven, was born and brought up in America before the family returned to England in 1912. He was born into an extremely wealthy family thanks to his grandfather who was one of the first American oil tycoons.
The origins of Lode Mill can be traced back to the Domesday Book of 1086. So, given it's age, you won't be surprised to hear that it needs a lot of care and maintenance. We have just completed a full restoration of the waterwheel mechanism and the Mill is now fully operational and producing fresh flour once again.
