Sherston Mill

The Upper Avon runs past two sides of the Old Silk Mill in Sherston near Malmesbury. Although just two miles from the source of the river it was powerful enough to flood the mill in November 2012.

We supervised flood repairs to the factory and offices and in 2015 completed a 150m Cotswold stone faced flood defence wall which is designed to take the site out of the flood plain and should protect it from flooding for the next 500 years of projected climate change.
