Visit to Jordan's Mill

Sat, May 14th 2016 at 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Ampthill Rotarians and their guests enjoyed an interesting visit to the mill. And what a fabulous lunch!


A bit of History

The history of the navigation here is that it came up from Tempsford as far as Shefford..  Its Act was passed in 1757.  It closed in 1876!  The navigation did not work as canals worked – all boats for the week would come up together and go down together because of the drain on the water for the mills!   Until the navigation arrived Shefford was inferior to Campton!  The remains of the lock at Jordans mill are the only complete lock left.
