Over the last few months we have been hoping to find someone with the experience and passion to help us repair our damaged water wheel. Millwrights in the area seem few and far between, and with paddles in desperate need for repair and in danger of getting worse, finding somebody to help became an urgent task! With help from local newspapers and Radio Stations, hopefully we will be able to find somebody willing to help keep the Mill’s heritage alive and give the wheel a new lease of life.
