An exhibition at a grade II listed watermill in Bedfordshire is marking 25 years since a fire which destroyed the building.

Volunteers from the 'Stotfold Watermill Preservation Trust' have put photos and a special model of the mill on display to show its restoration.

The display highlights the hard work that has gone into restoring the grade II listed building and its machinery.

The fire started at night and it took over so quickly and it wasn't until the morning that we could see just how badly the whole area had been burnt down. It's good to see people coming to enjoy the work that we've been doing and to see just how far we've come.
