Bradshaw's Mill

Bradshaw's Mill

Bradshaw's Mill is situated on the Bathurst River in the Eastern Cape, and was constructed in 1821 by a British settler named Samuel Bradshaw. Bradshaw was a weaver from Gloucestershire, the heartland of the English wool and textile industry. He originally built the mill to manufacture blankets and kersey cloth in Bathurst, which is where the South African wool industry started in the mid 1820's.

The mill operated for ten years after burning down in 1835 by Xhosa warriors during the Sixth Frontier War. Bradshaw's Mill was reconstructed in 1836 with a 3rd storey being added, and served as a grain mill until the end of the last century, when it fell into a state of disuse. The historic building was then purchased in 1964, by the Simon van der Stel Foundation who undertook extensive restoration of the mill in 1981. Bradshaw's Mill was later declared a national monument.
