Saltford Brass Mill
Saltford Brass Mill is situated on the banks of the River Avon in the village of Saltford, 5 miles west of the City of Bath in the South West of England.

The Brass Mill is the only surviving building, still with a furnace and working water wheel, remaining from a group of eighteenth century mills making copper and brass goods in the Avon Valley between Bristol and Bath.

The Brass Mill is cared for by a dedicated group of volunteers (The Saltford Brass Mill Project) who carry out husbandry tasks within the building and research the fascinating history of the Copper and Brass Industry.

The Brass Mill is host to a wide variety of wildlife, including: fish: birds (swans; kingfishers, herons, shags, and others); and insects (damselflies, butterflies and spiders).  But recent visitors which have attracted our attention are otters.  Click on the link below to see video footage of otters playing around the waterwheel.
