Original Turner painting of Winchester City Mill unearthed

A view of Winchester City Mill, Hampshire, with the water which powered the wheel rushing through the sluices

A watercolour depicting Winchester City Mill has been housed at the Tate Britain for over a century.

In 2013 the sketch, painted by the renowned landscape artist J.M.W. Turner, was identified by a member of staff who happened to be looking through the Tate's Turner Bequest.
 
The original will remain at the Tate Britain in London but the mill now has a high quality print of the painting on display.
 
The Turner painting is just one chapter in the Mill's history which dates back to Saxon times. Discover its stories for yourself.
