The St Johns Mill waterwheel in 1930. The photograph shows the side of the building and the waterwheel next to it. The St Johns Mill was mentioned in a document of 1260 and should not be confused with the Town Mills on the bank of the Cober river situated a little further upstream. It was used for corn grinding and ended its history grinding bark and leather pressing. It stopped working in 1937.
