Visit to House Mill, Bromley-by-Bow & Lunch
Thursday 4 October 2018
Dress: Suit/Jacket & Tie

The Master continues to showcase East London and as the Non-Executive Chair of the House Mill Trust he would love as many people as possible to visit the Grade 1 listed 18th Century House Mill, the largest surviving tidal mill in the world and regarded as East London's "hidden gem. In addition to milling flour, the mill made and supplied the adjacent gin distillery on the man-made Three Mills Island, supplying gin to London's 19th Century gin palaces. At the now fully restored mill and with historic machinery on view, we will hear about the rich history of House Mill and its role in the development of the rich industries once found in the lower Lea Valley. After enjoying refreshments on arrival, members and guests will be taken on a guided tour of House Mill by experts, stopping on the way for a gin tasting, hosted by a local gin distillery. The event will conclude with a buffet lunch in a memorable part of the old House Mill.
