Thanks.This mill would not have been on the Woodchester valley stream and may have been a Pin Mill.

Why do we have this reckless desire to build more and more houses?

How about producing fewer children? This little island is already overcrowded and contains a much larger population than it can sustain.

Let's just slow down a bit, have fewer children and enjoy a better QUALITY of life.

As a short-term measure we should be converting existing buildings to dwellings rather than tearing them down and building new. Much as I would prefer to see the Crown remain as a pub, I would rather see it converted to dwelling/s than have it ripped down and rebuilt (at great cost to the environment) as a faceless block of flats.

And before anyone asks, I have two daughters!

RR, we are producing more children.

The population is only growing because of a slight net immigration. The number of houses required is growing significantly because of the increase in single person households and the increase in 2nd home ownership.

CNR, I assume(!) that you meant aren't producing more children.

The question then must be asked 'Why are there more single people?'. I sometimes wonder if it could be that we have adopted an economic model that encourages and rewards selfish individualism instead of one that encourages the pursuit of happiness.

I am fascinated by the photo showing the Crown attached to a largish, traditional mill. This is news to me. Part of the area covered is a bank up which ran the "Pitch" to Tetbury via The Dark Lane and Market Street. This was the main route in use until The turnpike Trust was formed in 1780. The A46 being its first project. When was it demolished? Is there any sign of it adjacent to the Crown? Or does anyone have records of it?

To the left of the Crown wasn't there a separate little garden bit that wasn't car park? Which must have been about where the now missing building would have been. Might be interesting to go take a closer look at that bit.

Possibly the old mill building was demolished when the Crown needed parking for the dreaded motor cars.

The Crown will probably have fallen down before the planners can approve it's fate!

If you're standing facing the Crown you will see that on its left is a fairly tall stone wall which runs across the back looking out towards the road. Could that be the back wall of the old mill?

The Crown at Inchbrook must NOT be demolished. It's part of OUR heritage!

Don't know what that wall was but now I think that it is just a restaining wall for the banks fo earth behind and to the left of the Crown

Just noticed that the applicant has been required to apply for permission to demolish the building because it is in a conservation area... I wonder what that involves?

Also, the Town Council have submitted their response of 'No Objections'. Shows how in touch they are with local opinion.

Now that is depressing but hardly surprising.
