My grandad, Thomas Wilson was born in Guyzance in 1910. His father was the miller here at this point, until he died in a motorbike accident ~ 1929 I believe. They lived in the mill house which is on the other side of the road towards Guyzance village. After that point his wife, and my great uncle Fred Wilson ran the mill business but I don't know when the mill stopped being used. I think Fred became an agricultural rep, and retired to Warkworth in the late 1970's.
There is an interesting interview with Fred available here: A Miller's Tale - wish I'd been old enough to want to get a proper history from all of them myself - all I remember is the tall tales that grandad would tell us as kids!
