Lydbury Mill is mentioned in the Domesday Book and after consulting various maps it was thought that the most likely site was to the south of Lowr Gardens as shown on a map of Walcot dated 1704.
The Mill site excavation is progressing well in spite of the slight disturbance caused by the cows and sheep who pay no attention to the red and white tape! It is hope that we will be able to remove the rubble from the site to reveal the walls as soon as the whole site has been recorded.
