Mortimer's Cross Mill, Lucton

Grid reference: SO 426 637
OS sheet: 149
Postcode: HR6 9PE
Mortimer's Cross is on A4110, one mile S of Aymestrey. Mill is on N side of B4362 to Ludlow, just E of road junction. Large car park.

One of the few workable water-powered corn mills in Herefordshire, it dates from c.1750. The external breast-shot waterwheel and machinery were replaced a little over a hundred years later. A remarkably complete mill, with three pairs of stones, and all its machinery and equipment. Milling for demonstration only. Alongside once stood a paper mill. A footpath leads along the leat to a weir on the river Lugg.
