Support us Our appeals Hinxton Watermill Appeal Donate Urgent repairs are needed to Hinxton Watermill. There has been a watermill at Hinxton, on the River Cam, for at least 1,000 years. The current mill building dates from the 17th century and was saved from demolition and restored in the 1980s. The weatherboarding, windows and other exterior areas of the building are exposed and starting to rot. We need to replace the damage and repaint the mill in order to protect the building for future generations to enjoy. The watermill is cared for by volunteers who kindly operate the mill on visitor open days during the summer. Please donate towards this appeal.
