Files of handwritten notes on watermills

E. M. Gardner produced an extensive and expansive catalogue of handwritten notes relating to an array of watermills throughout England and Wales between the years 1947 and 1955. The handwritten notes of Gardner are arranged clearly by county in alphabetical order commencing with Cambridgeshire. Gardner's notes record details of the geographical locations, visual descriptions of the buildings and the extent to which the buildings had survived the test of time as well as the names of the present and past millers. All of E. M. Gardner's notes have been collated and amassed together having been separated from the notebooks of inventories, index cards, photographs and postcards which also comprise the E. M. Gardner collection. There are some newspaper cuttings which Gardner collected herself. The decision has been made to include and incorporate these newspaper cuttings with the handwritten notes for the relevant and at the same time interesting and valuable information that they impart.

This Sub - Series is comprised of seventy four photographs which are mainly of watermills situated in the Welsh historic counties of Anglesey , Caenarvon and Montgomeryshire. There are also photographs of watermills from the other Welsh counties. The majority of the photographs have been arranged by the alphabetical order of the name of the mill. However, in the case of the mills situated in the historic county of Montgomeryshire, the decision was made to place the photographs of these mills together under the letter "M" for "Montgomeryshire". This is an attempt to recognise and respect the fact that it was Gardner's wish for these photographs to remain together in sequence. Gardner grouped these photographs together and on the back of each photograph she provided the heading of "Mont", an abbreviation of "Montgomeryshire", for this purpose.
