Tellisford Mill is a 55 kilowatts (74 hp) installed capacity micro hydro run-of-the-river power station on the site of a former watermill located in the village of Tellisford in the Mendip district of Somerset, England. The mill lies on the River Frome 6 miles (9.7 km) north-east of the town of Frome.
Part of the Mendip Power Group, the mill was restored to power in April 2007 using a German made 55kW vertically mounted Kaplan turbine, which is expected to produce on average 270 kilowatt-hours (970 MJ) per year. The turbine replaced a 6 kilowatts (8.0 hp) Francis turbine built in 1895.
Tellisford Mill is also home to a photographic studio.
