Piccott's End Mill, Hemel Hempstead

The twenty eighth image is a photocopy of an illustration of a watermill which is simply identified as being "A Watermill near Hemel Hempstead. Hartfordshire (Hertfordshire)." However, it is most likely that this is Piccott's End Mill. There is no date of production recorded.

Mill at Lewisham

The twenty ninth image features the watermill of Lewisham in Kent. This item is a photocopy of an illustration of the mill produced in the late eighteenth century. Interestingly, the item has a caption on the left hand corner of the bottom of the sketch reading "A View of the Water Mill near Lewisham in Kent" while on the right hand corner this information is reproduced in French "Viie du Moulin a leau, aupres du Lewisham en Kent". The sketch was printed by "Carington Bowles, Map and Printseller No. 69 in St Paul's Church Yard, London." and published on 1 October 1770.
