Let all fair pilgrims note the postern door in the stone wall of the Cliffe grounds, near the picturesque Saxon Mill, with its decorative wooden balcony, where John Ruskin loved to linger, listening to the soft music of the mill wheel; for through that door, on 25th November 1773, “the divine Sarah” eloped with her love, William Siddons.... [pp28,9]

I [Liam] last visited the Saxon Mill in 1985, when it was a restaurant, with the nearby Guy’s Cliffe mansion in ruins. The mansion dates from 1822, although there was a house there long before then.
