Millwrights from IJP Owlsworth were with us on 21st and 2nndFebruary 2018 and the fully refurbished sweeps were returned from their workshops near Reading.

The first pair of sweeps was fitted successfully on Wednesday morning but despite heroic efforts by the team, rising wind speeds and failing daylight prevented the fitting of the second pair. The wind was much stronger on Thursday and so the work had to be halted and the second pair remains on the ground until the job can be reprogrammed in better conditions. 

We are looking forward to the mill working again in the near future. The completed project will see the mill in the best condition that it has been in since its original restoration in the 1970s.
