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.

2018 Survey and Repair
The Brass Mill is host to a wide variety of wildlife, including fish, swans, kingfishers, herons, shags, damselflies, butterflies and spiders. 
Bethany Sewell, a photography student at Falmouth University, has used the Brass Mill as the topic for a coursework project.   The project involved making a photographic record of the wildlife in and around the mill and producing a magazine article which discusses the relationship between conservation of the mill and the conservation of wildlife.  Click on the link below to read her article.
