August Theme: ‘ Heritage ‘
The Bridge Mill (a Water powered mill) at Bridgerule near Holsworthy Devon. A mill was recorded here by the Doomsday survey of 1086, and is almost certainly stood on the same site as the present Victorian mill building. This mill is again capable of grinding flour by waterpower for the first time is 60 years in 2012. This picture is the corn lift to the 3rd floor. All the working gear wheels of this mill has been remade by hand out of wood as per the original gearing by the present owners.
