The Oxley Flour Mill was erected in 1861 by William Allen who also operated the first mill in Wangaratta. In 1881, Allen established new premises in Wangaratta close to the vital rail link and sold the old mill to the Woodberry family who have owned it ever since. The four storey structure is constructed of local bricks. The mill was steam driven. The original brick boiler chimney has been demolished.

This photograph was taken in the early 1990s with Kodak High Speed Infrared film. I have a vast collection of negatives and I’ve had some of them professionally scanned to eliminate the need for a darkroom. One of the features of this film is a very grainy appearance.
