Reigate and Banstead: Salfords Mill

Salfords Mill was leased by the Seventh Day Adventists in the late 19th century. They later formed the London Health Food Company, under Dr Kellogg. It was the first mill in England working specially to produce breakfast cereals.

    My mother Margaret Filmer was born here in The Mill House, in the early 20th Century and after her father, Charles Milward died, the family came to live in NZ.

    I am writing a review for The Mill House, Salfords for TripAdvisor and can find very little history of the place. I believe it was a onetime manor house and mill, but there must be a lot more than just that?

      I have sent you a couple of items that may be of interest. The building is grade II listed from what I can see from the Council.
