A large watermill is situated north of Elsbridge on Thomas' Branch Line. It has appeared regularly since the second series.

In Three Steam Engines Gruff, Thomas, Percy and Toby all believed that there was a troll underneath the bridge due to some noises being heard. It turned out to be a cow that escaped a field. Trevor then saved the cow.



  • The watermill has appeared in the opening credits for the sixth series, and from the eighth to eighteenth series.
  • In Thomas and the Magic Railroad, the guard rails and arch disappear and the arch is covered by various shrubbery instead. The building also gains an additional window.
  • The number of tracks inconsistently changes between one and two.
  • Despite being on Thomas' Branch Line, mainline engines like HenryGordon, James and even Donald and Douglas can be seen passing by the Watermill in some episodes.
