The Mill – Margaret Townsend

Gayle Mill was partitioned off to provide housing, we think, for the manager and his family.  Our researcher has traced the possible dates to between 1840 and 1879; but she believes the wallpaper is about 1860.  As you can see there are several layers, so the family must have lived there for a few years.  We suspect that the partitioned part was divided into two rooms as the wallpaper on the righthand side appears slightly different, but the design is very indistinct.
