Faversham’s Gunpowder Mills

K.L. and B.J Kosanke

Recently, while in the United Kingdom and between teaching pyro-chemistry short courses, we took a side trip to visit the restored Chart gunpowder mill. This is the only restored mill from what was once a collection of approximately ten powder mills near the town of Faversham in Kent county. When operating at their peak in 1792, these mills produced over 25,000 barrels of powder.
