Facts about Three Mills London E3

The Three Mills are former working mills on the River Lea in the East End of London, one of London’s oldest extant industrial centres. The House Mill remains the largest tidal mill in the world, although the water wheels are not in operation. The River Lea Tidal Mill Trust Ltd now own the building and open to visitors on Sunday afternoons during the summer. It is one of only four grade I listed buildings in the London Borough of Newham. It is mainly accessed by a bridge over the Limehouse Cut and River Lea.

The River Lea Tidal Mill Trust Ltd owns the House Mill and the Miller’s House buildings, and use them for educational projects and conference spaces. The Lower Lea Project also bases itself at Three Mills in The Miller’s House. The creation of the Three Mills Lock on the Prescott Channel and the Three Mills Wall River Weir, for the 2012 Summer Olympics construction work, has created a head of water behind the mill. This may mean that it can be operated again, but it has partially removed the tidal benefits of the site.

History

Stratford Langthorne Abbey, founded in 1135, acquired the three mills some time in the 12th or 13th centuries, and the area became known as Three Mills. In the 1530s, the mills ground flour for the bakers of Stratford-atte-Bow, who supplied the huge City of London market and renowned for the quality of their bread. During the 16th century the three mills were reduced to two (which today are the House Mill and the Clock Mill). In the 17th century the grain produced became used to distil alcohol; the mills became a major supplier to the alcohol trade and gin palaces of London.

In 1878 there were seven waterwheels at Three Mills. Most of them were around 20 ft in diameter and 3 ft in width, but one was 8 ft in width. There were four in the House Mill and three in the Clock Mill. They drove fourteen pairs of millstones and produced a total of 150HP (112KW). The average output of the House Mill was about 2 tons of maize and 5 tons of barley per tide rising to 10 and 14 tons respectively on spring tides. The average weekly throughput of the two mills was 125 tons per week.

Ownership changed relatively frequently during the 17th to the late 19th centuries, until 1872 when it was purchased by gin distillers J&W Nicholson & Co of Clerkenwell. Initially producing Lamplighter Gin on site, the company eventually moved production of all of their brands to the site. Distilling ceased in 1941 during the rationing shortages of World War II. The Nicholson family, headed by Sir Richard Nicholson, sold the business to the Distillers Company. Three Mills sustained severe air-raid damage during the Second World War. Three Mills was used for bottling and warehousing by Bass Charrington and Hedges & Butler.
