Ashton Mill, Oundle Road, Ashton - East Northamptonshire

Former water-powered corn mill, adapted circa 1900 to form electricity-generating and water-pumping station for the Ashton Estate. Housed the Dragonfly Museum until 2001, since unoccupied. Historic England grant aided localised urgent repairs of building fabric in 2014/15 and urgent mill machinery repairs in early 2016. The building remains unused and suffers occasional heritage crime.
