Hockley

Hockley is a three storey brick water mill with tiled roof built in 1803 with an adjoining barn which has now been converted into accommodation. The mill still contains a working iron Poncelet style waterwheel which drives a horizontal timber mainshaft designed primarily to drive barn machinery. Two pairs of stones remain and the mostly wooden machinery for their operation is intact. The mill is looked after by the Hampshire Mills group and is open during National Heritage and Mills weekends and by request. Many thanks for their help during my survey.

The layshaft in this drawing was inside the adjoining barn and has now been removed. The layout has been established from a hand drawn 3d drawing by John Reynolds and a photograph seen in the Mills Archive
