First Government Water Mill, Parramatta

Mill built at Mays Hill on the upper reaches of the Parramatta River about 1792 by Thomas Allen. It would appear to have been in use briefly in 1793, but it was unreliable and frequently broke down so was largely unused. Rebuilt in 1804, it was still fairly unsuccessful and was destroyed in 1820.
