Restoration project at mill

The owners of a Grade II listed watermill are looking for volunteers to help with its restoration.

Alison and Stephen de Lara-Bell bought Kersey Mill, near Hadleigh, in June and have been refurbishing the associated buildings for the last six months.

With a variety of businesses now up and running, attention has turned to the four-storey watermill, which is mentioned in the Domesday Book.

The couple are holding an open day on January 5 and are hoping to receive advice on how to get the mill working again.

“It has been a busy few months, but we are ready to concentrate on the mill,” said Alison.
