The earliest recorded mention of Willsbridge Mill dates back to the 13th century when it was referred to as “Wilesbrygge.” At that time, the mill was primarily used for grinding grain into flour. It was ideally situated on the River Boyd, which provided a steady source of water to power the mill’s machinery.
Staff and visitors to the mill experience frequent and unexplained happenings, shadowy figures or full-bodied apparitions within the mill. These sightings are often described as fleeting or vanishing quickly.

Willsbridge Mill is a historic watermill located in Willsbridge, South Gloucestershire, England. Its history dates back several centuries, and it has played a significant role in the local community and the industrial development of the region.
Over the centuries, Willsbridge Mill changed hands several times. In the 17th century, it was owned by the Creswicke family, who made significant improvements to the mill, including the addition of a new waterwheel. The Creswickes also expanded the mill’s operations to include the production of paper.
During the 18th and 19th centuries, Willsbridge Mill experienced further growth and modernization. It was acquired by the Hill family, who transformed it into a thriving industrial complex. The mill was expanded to include a pottery, a fulling mill, and a sawmill. Additionally, a new waterwheel was installed to increase production capacity.
The 19th century was a particularly prosperous period for Willsbridge Mill. It played a vital role in supplying local communities with flour, paper, and other essential goods. The mill’s success was partly due to its strategic location near Bristol, a major port city and industrial center at the time.
However, with the advent of the Industrial Revolution and the rise of steam-powered machinery, water-powered mills like Willsbridge Mill began to decline. The introduction of steam engines made it possible to operate mills and factories in areas without access to waterways. As a result, many watermills went out of business or were converted to other uses.
