Trelawne Mill
Trelawne Mill as you see it today is thought to have been built in 1604, however a mill is rumoured to have stood on this site since the 14th Century. The Mill was fully equipped with a water wheel to the back of the building, with the water being carried in a leat from about two miles up the West Looe Valley. The property has a vast history of mill works, with corn still being milled on site in 1914. Today, the property and grounds have been lovingly restored and maintained by the current owners, providing an absolute rural dream to any prospective purchasers.
