Eskdale Mill - meal floor

This shows the gear for the working set of stones. The pit wheel is seen at the back and drives the stones directly via a bevel wheel that can be lifted out of engagement. On the right is the tentering gear that raises and lowers a large curved wooden tentering beam. In the centre the meal spout delivers into a bucket elevator that takes the oatmeal back to the stone floor to pass through a jog scry. The output of the latter enters the wire machine on the left. It was nice to see some of the Cumbrian mills and I found the staff friendly.
