Loved this place. Quaint little shops. Great to just stroll around or people watch. It was funny to see ducks walking along with the people.

Nice to see - horrible area/drug addicts about. Mill rebuilt after the 1781 raid. New London should clean up area or move the mill. Never open either!

Sadly the blight of New London was built up right adjacent to the mill. People in the back where doing drugs and shocked to see us. No one else around.

This mill is located underneath the bridge that connects New London and Groton - you hear the traffic while you look at the mill - The building was closed, but seeing the outside and the surroundings was very nice.

Worth the visit - and please leave a donation to keep this wonderful place open. The waterwheel is actually running. The place is under Rt95, so it's noisy. You won't be able to video the ambient sounds...
