Gants Mill is a watermill on the River Brue in Pitcombe near Bruton, Somerset, England. Much of the current mill was built in 1810 but includes parts of the 18th century building and possibly some material from earlier mills, as there has been a mill on the same site since about 1290 which was originally a fulling mill. It is a grade II* listed building, and takes its name from John le Gaunt who owned it in 1290. The mill was owned for four centuries by the Weston family and papers relating to the mill are now held in the Somerset Record office.

  • Gants Mill is een watermolen aan de rivier in Pitcombe, in de buurt van Bruton, Somerset, Engeland. Veel van de huidige molen is gebouwd in 1810, maar bevat onderdelen van molens uit de 18e eeuw en eerder. Dit komt doordat er op dezelfde plek al sinds 1290 molens stonden, die origineel dienstdeden als volmolen. De molen heeft zijn naam te danken aan John le Gaunt, die deze in 1290 bezat. De molen was vier eeuwen lang in handen van de familie Weston en de documenten van de molen worden nu bewaard in het Somerset Record Office.

  • Gants Mill is een watermolen aan de rivier in Pitcombe, in de buurt van Bruton, Somerset, Engeland. Veel van de huidige molen is gebouwd in 1810, maar bevat onderdelen van molens uit de 18e eeuw en eerder. Dit komt doordat er op dezelfde plek al sinds 1290 molens stonden, die origineel dienstdeden als volmolen. De molen heeft zijn naam te danken aan John le Gaunt, die deze in 1290 bezat. De molen was vier eeuwen lang in handen van de familie Weston en de documenten van de molen worden nu bewaard in het Somerset Record Office. Het meeste binnenwerk van de molen stamt uit 1888 en wordt nog steeds gebruikt voor het malen van dierenvoeding en volkorenmeel. Wel is de stoomturbine in 1914 vervangen door een semi-diesel. De is in 2001 opgericht en de eerste moderne turbine werd in 2003 in Gants Mill ge├»nstalleerd. Deze werd aangezet door op Vrijdag 23 April 2004. Hij produceert momenteel 12kW aan elektricieit van een 300mm . Het systeem maakt gebruik van een doorstroomturbine van uit Cornwall, en heeft een maximale doorstroomsnelheid van 495 liter per seconde. Brian Shingler is de zesde generatie van zijn familie die de molen beheert. De bevat irissen, rozen, ridderspoor, daglelies, clematis en dahlia's
  • Gants Mill is a watermill on the River Brue in Pitcombe near Bruton, Somerset, England. Much of the current mill was built in 1810 but includes parts of the 18th century building and possibly some material from earlier mills, as there has been a mill on the same site since about 1290 which was originally a fulling mill. It is a grade II* listed building, and takes its name from John le Gaunt who owned it in 1290. The mill was owned for four centuries by the Weston family and papers relating to the mill are now held in the Somerset Record office. Most of the machinery, including the grindstones, conveyors, sackhoist and grain bins, date from 1888 and is still used for grinding animal feed and occasionally whole wheat flour. A 20 inches (51 cm) British Empire turbine by Armfields of Ringwood was also installed. Steam power was introduced in 1883, and replaced by semi-diesel in 1914. The South Somerset Hydropower Group was begun in 2001 and the first turbine, at Gants Mill, was commissioned in 2003. It was turned on by Adam Hart Davis on Friday 23 April 2004. It now produces up to 12kW of electricity from a 300mm crossflow turbine. The system uses a crossflow turbine made by Valley Hydro of Cornwall, and has a maximum flow rate of 495 litres per second. Brian Shingler is the sixth generation of his family to act as the miller. The water garden includes seasonal displays of iris, roses, delphiniums, day lilies, clematis, and dahlias.
