Lynchburg TV station WSET, Channel 13, aired a story about Brightwell’s Mill in Amherst County.
The story is by Rachel Schaerr.
Longtime JRBF Batteau Man Ricky Brightwell of the batteau Maple Run owns this mill which has been in his family for generations.
Ricky believes many of our batteau family will be interested in efforts to save and restore another Virginia landmark.
Brightwell’s Mill is located in Amherst County at 684 Brightwell’s Mill Road, Madison Heights, VA 24572. This 100% water-powered grist mill dates early 1800”s and is located on Beck’s Creek (aka Stovall’s Creek) less than four miles west of Galt’s Mill.
