Jefferies Mill with Holy Rood Church by John Luckett Jefferies

The great grandfather of Richard Jefferies (the writer) bought the old mill in Swindon Old Town at the same time as the bakery in the Square in Old Town and the Jefferies' Farm at Coate some time around 1800.

 

This watercolour of the old mill was painted by Richard Jefferies' uncle.

 

The mill was pulled down years ago along with most of Holyrood Church.
