Trelowarren Watermill, 1935
Trelowarren watermill, 1935. Near Gear Bridge on the Helford River, this was the last grist mill erected in Cornwall. During the 1914-18 war, two smaller mills higher up the valley had done very well and the government had protected the price of corn. The new mill was built and fitted with the latest machinery. Unfortunately, the government's protection proved to be ineffective when the Russians flooded the world market with cheap corn and the new mill was never used.
