When the mills and water tower were burnt down in 1576 and fountains of the Old Town were without water, millers and owners of brewery decided to voluntarily increase their rates for water, and thus soon afterwards the water tower was erected again. The bank of the river was firmly settled by various kinds of traditional craft industries that needed the river water for their running, besides mills, as well as knife and sword grinders, dye-houses, baths, breweries and at last icemen working here in winter were dependent on water. All the mills of Prague were many times destroyed by floods and fires during the course of their existence, and therefore they were also reconstructed as often as it was needed. The Novotného lávka had suffered severe damage in 1648 while the Swedish soldiers whose heavy artillery located at the height of the Prague Castle having their target in the palms of their hands were besieging Prague. Similar situation resumed during revolutionary events in 1848 when the Novotného lávka had come again under attack from the artillery. It is worth mentioning that in the mills grain was crushed and ground to make flour until the first half of 20th century.
