Bio

“I have been involved with country estates for over 20 years and spent a period of time working for The National Trust. ┬áMy wife and I moved to Mapledurham village in 1999 and were going to stay for about 18 months and we are still here.

I started to do some work for Mapledurham Estate about 7 years ago which involved helping in the watermill. In 2012 my wife and I had the opportunity to take on Mapledurham Watermill, we now rent the watermill and gift shop from the Estate and I am the principal guide for the private tours of the Manor House and mill.

Mapledurham Watermill is now the last commercially working watermill left on The River Thames . There has been a watermill at Mapledurham for over a 1000 years”.
