Hendrick's Mill

-A A +A
c. 1978 and later, Paul Hendrick, designer and builder. Off 269 Ten Rod Rd.

Another converted mill, this one is visible across fields to the north of Ten Rod Road (but not normally visitable). Its bright red wheel is startling in its matter-of-fact Exeter setting, especially when operating. Slightly smaller than Lawton Mill, it has been immaculately rebuilt from a ruin on ancient foundations as a gristmill. No commercial mill can have been as beautifully crafted as this hobbyist's labor of love, nor any commercial woodworking and machine shop as handsome as the one this mill contains. The “eighteenth-century” central-chimney house beside the mill is also Hendrick's work (c. 1983 and later).
