The House Mill is a grade 1 listed 18th century tidal mill set in a beautiful riverside location in the heart of London’s East End.

It was built in 1776 as a timber framed building with a brick facade. It is the largest remaining Tidal Mill in the UK and one of the few Grade 1 listed industrial buildings in London. It spans the tidal reach of the River Lea over six channels carrying four water wheels operating 12 pairs of millstones during its time as an operational building.

Today the House Mill has a cafe/bar and plays host to a range of activities and events including heritage tours, concerts and art exhibitions, all with the aim of restoring the building into a working mill at the heart of the community once more.
