Watermills on the River Rea in South Shropshire

by Tim Booth

A5 softback booklet format, 46 pages, a map and a number of black & white photos and drawings.

In the fifteen years since the last edition was prepared, local historians and researchers have looked at various sites more closely and added much to earlier findings, including in-depth studies of many of the industrial mill sites.

The book covers 32 mills or mill sites, and also mentions 13 early or possible mill sites.
