Chart Gunpowder Mills (2021)

The 18th century mills were part of the Home Works, Faversham's first gunpowder factory and one of the first in Britain. It is one of the very few restored gunpowder mills in the country and, given a suitable water supply, is fully working. It supplied gunpowder for Trafalgar and Waterloo. The mills fell into disuse when manufacture was transferred to the North-West in 1934. Rescued and restored by Faversham Society volunteers in 1987.
