In 1885, Meadow Lily Mills was destroyed by fire, it was rebuilt at once by William Hayman. The new three-storey building was made of brick and had a high stone foundation. By 1889, the mill had a capacity of 150 barrels a day and employed twelve men. The leading brands of flour were “Cream,” “Straight,” “Tip-Top,” “Plewes Extra,” and “Meadow Lillie.” In 1891, the mill was again destroyed by fire and immediately rebuilt. William Plewes died in 1895, having owned the Meadow Lily Mills for a quarter of a century. The mill was taken over by his son Heber Plewes.
It was not rebuilt after the third fire it had and since then stands in ruins. we decided to venture down there to see what we could find. Very interesting place to visit....things are hidden in places that history books don't even mention. Very cool place to check out if you are interested :)
