Romsey Mills and Waterways
- Romsey Mills and Waterways recalls the days when Romsey’s mills made a significant contribution to the town's economy. Romsey lies in the lower part of the valley of the River Test. Like many towns, Romsey’s manufacturers drew on the passing water to provide power for their mills. This book charts the history of the town’s various mills and milling families. It also sets out with simple diagrams, how mills worked. In addition there are references to other uses of water, in particular to the water meadow systems around the town.
