Ethelred Street

The third mill in the area of Lambeth Walk was leased by druggists and apothecaries for several years and was known as the Lambeth drug mill.

It first appeared on maps in the mid-18th century but had disappeared by the 19th century. A watercolour of 1780 shows it as a three-storey tower mill with a stage at first-floor level and an oddly shaped cap with an unusually elongated windshaft projecting at the front.
