Memories of Snuff Mills at Frenchay

“I have vivid memories from my childhood of all the renovation work that was done on the water mill and weirs and to make the area into the lovely riverside walk we know today.”

“My father was very involved in helping to renovate the old water-mill; he took apart the old paddles/ scoops to repair them.”

“I also remember King George VI coming to visit Snuff Mills to celebrate the work on the weir. All us kids helped by placing new slates onto the weir and King George even placed a slate too.”

“Next time you visit look out for the little angel and a frog that are placed next to the water wheel. “
