Gigg Mill

The mill is built on the Horsley brook at a spot where the stream plunges down in to the Nailsworth Valley. In the early 1900s power was still provided by a 17ft diameter waterwheel. The small mill is unpretentious, however this is a historic mill site. Its origins are uncertain but it was part of the estate of a clothier which he bought in 1559.
