Crown Roller Mills, Dunedin NZ

Starting life in 1867 as a steam-driven flour mill with three stories and platform for a fourth, the Crown Roller Mills were extended in 1878 and then achieved five stories in 1890. It was in use until 1997 when then owner Goodman Fielder shifted their production elsewhere. It has since been converted into apartments and a restaurant. It is situated on Manor Place just off Princes Street. On Monday 21 May I walked down to Manor Place and took a look around.

  1. It’s wonderful that it was converted to apartments without changing the outside shape at all. A piece of history restored and conserved.

  2. I could quite happily live in an apartment in this fantastic building! A restaurant on site, perfect! Benjamin likes it too. I just love seeing old buildings treated respectfully. Thank-you x 2!!
