Vermont may boast some beautiful farms and barns, but that’s not all. It also claims a high number of covered bridges and several historic mills.
Bob’s Water Mill is one of those little gems that most people bypass on their way to Weston. This unassuming and frequently-ignored little mill sits next to the Waterwheel House Quilt Shop near the ttown of Londonderry, Vermont.
Bob’s Water Mill is immersed in green through spring, surrounded by orange and red in autumn, and covered with a coat of white in the heart of winter. The little mill is best photographed in low light during the early morning hours, as the metal roof and wooden boards are quick to become overexposed under bright sunlight.
This image was made on a foggy June morning just before sunrise. After a downpour, you may be rewarded with a mill reflection in the water-filled trough.
Bob’s Water Mill lies on famous Route 100 traversing Vermont north to south. It can be reached from Londonderry by driving a mile north from the intersection of Route 11. Or from Weston, drive 3.5 miles south on Route 100 to arrive at the mill.
