Union Mill AA028913

UNION MILL, THE HILL, CRANBROOK, TUNBRIDGE WELLS, KENT. A view of Union Mill from the south, showing the smock mill intact, photographed in August 1932. This smock mill was built in 1814. When the photograph was taken it was a working mill but by 1952, when it was designated as a listed building, it was mostly run by electricity rather than by wind-power. The mill was repaired in the late 1950s and further major work was carried out in the early 2000s

Old Mill AA028941

OLD MILL, LITTLE BETTESHANGER, NORTHBOURNE, DOVER, KENT. A view of Old Mill, showing the smock mill in working condition, photographed in May 1929. A mill is known to have been standing on this site in 1769, near the hamlet of Little Betteshanger. It lost two of its sails in 1925 but the owner Lord Northbourne reconditioned the mill in 1928. At the time of the photograph it was a working mill and was operated by Mr J Court who appears to be standing at the door to the mill. It was later demolished in 1957
