Birchley Mill, gearing
The metal overhot wheel on the other side of the wall runs on a metal shaft but the cast pit wheel drives apparently older machinery in a wooden hurst frame. Bottom right is the end of the wooden layshaft that drove the two pairs of stones while the vertical shaft operated the sack hoist from a crown wheel on the next floor up.
