Silverbrook Mills

Map Reference: C448003 (2448, 4003)

This collection of buildings at Silverbrook Bridge includes a corn mill and a flax mill. Both mills have breast shot water-wheels. The corn mill stands closer to the roadway and is known to contain a corn kiln. At the time of my visit the mills could not be entered, so the details of the stone floor etc are not available. At the other side of the yard are two buildings set a right angles to each other. Between them is another water-wheel which drove the flax mill. Between the mills is a small single storey building which may have been the millerís house. The buildings have been restored by the Dunnamanagh and District Community Association.
