Very nice Will and very interesting. Up here all the old eighteenth and nineteenth century "Meal mills" were water powered from strong mountain streams or "burns" as we call them.
Most are completely gone, but a few miles from me there is one in fair condition, not working and roofless, but the dam, mill race and mill wheels are still visible.
You are fortunate to be involved with such a beautiful piece of history.
