SUMMARY: We are delighted to welcome to the local market 'The Old Scutchmill', one of the most impressive properties on the North Coast. Built in 1827 as part of the linen industry in the north, the mill cost £90 and was originally thatched. According to the Ordinance Survey undertaken in 1835 it had a breast wheel which was 14 feet diameter, 2 feet wide and had a 10 foot fall of water, enabling four workers to scutch at the same time. Scutching is the process by which the hard outer casing of the rotted flax is removed by revolving flails to leave the flax fibers, which are then be spun into linen thread. The mill was owned by John Smith who was also a farmer. It operated continuously until the early 1950's when demand for linen reduced after the war as new fabrics like nylon became available. Two of the original workers who have revisited the mill in the last few years describe it as a very happy place to work and both looked back on nostalgically on the time they spent there. One of them donated a photo of the mill workers taken sometime in the 1930s. Many of them had fought in the First World War. After its closure the mill was used as an occasional farm building but gradually became derelict. It was rescued by the previous owners Gordon and Elma Woods who sympathetically restored the building and converted it into a wonderful house. Both Gordon and Elma were artists and they used their talent to good effect, making the best of the historical features of the building and its magical setting by the river and the old bridge. The main work area is now the living room but it retains some of the original features where the machinery was fitted. The wheel house now has a sun filled conservatory, with a vine where the wheel was sited. The old mill yard has been roofed over to give an additional sitting room and another conservatory which looks out over the bend in the river where on a summer evening the trout can be seen jumping as they feed. Some of the reclaimed timber used in the conversion is said to have come from shipwrecks, including one piece alleged to be from the Spanish Armada. The mill is within walking distance to the National Trust wetlands and bird sanctuary at the mouth of the Bann, with easy access also to Castlerock golf course. Without a doubt one of the most stunning properties on the North Coast. KEY FEATURES: ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●
