The history of, and restoration plans for, Bridgwater's Lytle Mill (The Old Town Mill)

Guest speaker at the July meeting of Bridgwater and District Civic Society is Stewart Richards.

Stuart will be talking about his ambitious plans to restore the medieval Lytle Mill, adjoining the Blake Museum in Blake Street.

This is one of the town's oldest buildings and was known by many local people as The Old Town Mill.

Stewart is a Chartered Chemist and Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry. Stewart has spent his entire working life in the field of flexible packaging holding a series of managerial posts at British Cellophane prior to transferring to the USA for 14 years with UCB Films. He is now a semi-retired consultant to the flexible packaging industry. On his return to the UK in 2013, he was encouraged to become involved with Blake Museum by his wife who was already a volunteer. A number of people involved with the museum were keen for him to get involved in a project to restore the town mill; he is now leading that project in a voluntary capacity, on behalf of Bridgwater Town Council and Blake Museum.

Another interesting and informative evening of Bridgwater history is guaranteed!

The meeting will take place on Wednesday July 10th, 7.30pm, The Victoria Centre, Victoria Park, Bridgwater, TA6 3LS Civic Society members free, visitors always welcome at £3.
