Josephine Mill

The Josephine Mill initially operated during the mid-1800s, and has been completely restored to full operation by the Cape Town Historical Society. It is the home of a welcoming restaurant overlooking the Liesbeek River.

It was declared a National Monument under old NMC legislation on 15 December 1978. Newlands in Cape Town is home to the Josephine Mill which was built in 1840. Its machinery ceased operation in 1963 and it was decided to renovate and reconstruct the mill to get it operating again, which was achieved by 1988. Josephine Mill’s is a little slice of history in the heart of the green, leafy suburb of Newlands. It is situated on the banks of the Liesbeek River, and the only remaining water mill that can be found in the Mother City of Cape Town.

The Liesbeek River is not only tree-lined but also runs through Newlands and Rondebosch, joining the Black River at Observatory. You can start walking along the river from Josephine Mill through to Rondebosch.
