About This Image

A Mill has stood on this site since 1664 and believed to have been built of wood.
The present mill was built in 1793 by William Porter of Newport, a self-made man who could not read nor write. Yarmouth Mill was his last venture as the bank which financed him, took fright at the extent of his empire and withdrew its support.
Steam power was introduced at a later date, certainly by 1845 to supplement the weaker tides. The remains of the old brick chimney can be seen in this image at the north-east corner of the building.

Thank you Mike for your comments on this image, as Jas has pointed out what you think is 'black thing' is in fact a sea gull. Brian, thanks for your comments on this image, yes we are so very lucky to have such a lot of historical interests on a small island. Jas thanks for pointing out the 'black thing' on this image. Chriss:)

Thanks to Jas, Allen, Beverly & Ikka for your very kind comments on this image. I was very pleased with the way it turned out, as I only used a small compact camera.

Beautiful Photo Chriss!! The swans and ducks really add to the view, It looks like they figured you had some food LOL.. Great photo and reflections of the mill in the water.

You've captured the mill really well, Chriss. Lovely reflections in the water and I like how you captured the swans and ducks too. Very interesting information on the mill. :)
