Shears Mill

The Parish Council, in partnership with the Hampshire Mills Group, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, the National Lottery and Eastleigh Borough Council recently completed the restoration of the housing containing the turbines that once powered Shears Mill.

The picture at right shows Shears Mill in the early nineteen hundreds and was taken from outside what is now the River Inn. The steam wagon is parked in Riverside. The project was completed by local builders, Bruno Construction and Restoration Ltd, and formally marked by local MP, Mike Thornton, at a small ceremony on Friday 6 September 2013.

The images. Above shows the mill, looking toward Eastleigh with the Prince of Wales in the distance. Right shows the mill, with Riverside to the right. Below shows the mill with Montague Road in the background.
