Totnes Town Mill Waterwheel Restoration Project.
13th January 2020
A restoration grant is being sought by the charity, Totnes Trust, for repairs to the Water Wheel that is part of an historic and important 16th century, Grade II Listed industrial building known as Town Mill, Coronation Road, Totnes. The property is now in the ownership of the Totnes Trust and is sited in a very prominent position near the town centre, fronting busy pedestrian and vehicle routes.
The woodwork on the wheel has now deteriorated to such a state that it can no longer be operated. We have applied for a grant to cover the full restoration project cost and have been successful in reaching the second round. The restoration will be carried out using local craftsmen.
One stipulation in the grant offering is that we as a town must be able to show local support for the project. We therefore ask, if readers consider this is a worthwhile project; could they email a short note to firstname.lastname@example.org stating their support plus their name. For various reasons we need to get the application completed by Saturday 18th January.
