Stretton Mill - millstones
Stretton Mill - millstones
These are the two sets of millstones driven from the eastern breast shot wheel. This end of the mill dates back to 1630 but the wheel was replaced in 1852 and some of the gearing seems to have been replaced. The crown wheel drives the sack hoist.
