There is hardly a more picturesque sight than that of an old mill. Indeed some of England's greatest painters have chosen mills as subjects. Using water or wind to harness energy is an ancient notion and the streams and rivers of Britain have been driving mill wheels for thousands of years. Early on mills were small, local businesses grinding corn or flour or flax. As industry grew, the Victorians built more and greater mills to drive the machinery of growth. Large mills powered enormous equipment that sawed or ground or lifted huge hammers to card cotton or full wool. By the end of the 19th century, there were 20,000 mills in England. Before the zenith of the Industrial Revolution, on a dusty village road, the miller at Brandon Mill ground corn for his neighbors.
