The earliest known mills in Brighton are depicted in a coloured drawing of the French attacking the town. The drawing is dated 1545, but probably based on the events of 1514 when the invaders landed and burnt down every dwelling.

This publication covers the early windmills, windmills near the sea, windmills near Dyke Road, east Brighton mills, north Brighton mills and the steam flour mills.

A Sussex Watermill Sketchbook
by F. W. Gregory & R. G. Martin
ISBN Size Binding Extent
1 85770 134 8 A5 landscape Paperback 110 pages

From early beginnings in the 1930s Frank Gregory explored the more local mills on his push bike, making sketches and completing them at home.

At weekends the Gregory family visited the more distant highways and byways of Sussex by car and young Frank always took along sketching equipment.

Front Cover - A Sussex Watermill Sketchbook

During the period of Frank's watermill survey, many were still turning and earning an honest living, but those mills that had become idle were being allowed to decay. Frank kept records of the state of each mill and helped wherever possible by encouraging and involving himself in restoration work. He was a regular visitor to many mills while they were still working, and knew the millers personally.

Frank was a recognised authority not only on Sussex but at national and international levels.

This presentation is a tribute to Frank, who was dedicated to the well being of Sussex mills for more than 60 years.

The English Windmill
A film by Martyn Taylor

A volunteer at Nutley Windmill, Martyn is a video editor and was encouraged by Brian Pike to update his earlier "History of Nutley Windmill" video. Martyn ended up expanding it into a fuller documentary on the history of windmills, enabling him to indulge his passion for windmills and for making films.

Around 6 years went into making the film. He travelled the country, visiting many windmills and meeting the volunteers who willingly give up their time and knowledge to help restore and run them. He also undertook a trip to the suburbs of Paris for a feature on millstones.


Running time approx. 98 minutes.

The DVD is available to purchase from a number of Sussex Mills on Open Days.
