Description and History

Butler’s Grinders and Operators was built in the mid-19th century and possibly used originally for rice and oil milling. It was the last working mill in the area, closing in 1995.

This part of Shad Thames included a large number of mills linking with St Saviour’s Dock (which abuts the east side of the street). You can still see the early/mid-19th century overhead footbridge connecting to St Andrew’s Wharf. You can also see a large millstone in the courtyard through the entrance gates at 10/11 Shad Thames.
