The sack hoist chain and trap doors can be seen. The bevel gears drive a further hoist in the lucum but this is no longer used.
Charlecote Mill
A fine example of a working watermill, still producing flour. It presents an excellent example of a fairly large lowland mill, and as such had its listing as a historic building upgraded to Listed Grade II* in 2002.
The present mill was built in around 1806 and is unusual in having two separate wheels. This however does mean that there is a large uninterrupted working space through the middle of the mill. The wheels are of the undershot type, with a diameter of 18 feet, but the relatively small fall is compensated for by the volume of water provided by the river. When the level of the river gets too high, there is insufficient fall and the mill cannot work.
