Langham is a village in the county of Rutland, and in this booklet the author provides a brief history of the village mills and the millers who worked them.
From the introduction: For as long as I can remember, we had in our house, a very heavy, cubed shaped lump of metal worn down in places and mostly used as a doorstop but sometimes to weigh things down while they glued or drained. My mother was very proud of this lump as it was a relic of the mill on Mill Hill once owned by her Great Grandfather Robert Bown. It is still working now but as a bookend and Nigel Moon of Whissendine Mill believes it to be part of the bearing of a tail brass for a dresser or possibly a windshaft. Since little was known of Robert Bown, his origins and connection to Langham I decided to see what I could discover and this booklet is the result. It has been an interesting journeythese last few years visiting mills, museums etc and meeting millers and milling enthusiasts all so very passionate about the subject...
Condition of the booklet is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, the staple spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
