Little Salkeld Mill - hurst frame
Little Salkeld Mill - hurst frame
This shows the gearing between the water wheel and the stones on the floor above. The pit wheel and wallow are hiding behind the framing but the great spur wheel is clearly seen. The closest stone nut is lifted out of engagement as the stones above are out of use and the runner stone is off. The far stone nut is just visible and is driving the working set of French burr stones that produce flour for sale. The gear wheel at the front of the frame that is below and right of centre is the sack hoist drive. The meal spout is on the extreme right and was feeding into an oscillating sieve (out of sight) to produce 85% wholemeal flour - the sieve removing some of the bran.

An earlier photograph shows mesh guarding over this machinery but it looks much better without it and it is arguably not necessary.
