Loddon

Loddon

Loddon is a lovely town situated on the banks of the River Chet blessed with wonderful architecture including a large mill, and plenty of shops to keep the interest of all keen shoppers.

There was a mill mentioned in the Domesday Book and a watermill at Chedgrave in the early 1330s, however they do not exist today. The present mill, Loddon watermill near the town centre which is no longer functioning, was built in the 18th century with the river diverted to run underneath it.

Loddon watermill sometimes known as Chedgrave Mill and is one of the earliest recorded buildings in the town. It was built of weatherboard with a pantiled roof and was situated quite close to the centre of the town. The mill pool was never very big, but was apparently a widened and deepened Y shaped section of river up stream of the mill. This produced adequate power for the miller to meet the needs of the local farmers and villagers. The mill still retains 19th-century milling equipment.

Further downriver is the Hardley Flood which is an excellent place for the keen bird watcher
