The Torrs, New Mill
The Torrs, New Mill
This used to be a dangerous overgrown area but is now a pleasant spot for a walk and was proving very popular on a March Sunday. The remains of Torr Mill are left of centre. The green mesh covered device is "Archie" an archimedean screw in reverse that uses falling water to turn a generator (normally a motor turns the screw to lift water). This supplies the local Co-operative store and was churning out 40 kW when seen.
