Great Mill, Haddenham - stone floor
This shows the three sets of stones. The nearest set are disused with the drive instead passing via the metal shaft to drive a smutter on the floor above. The vertical mainshaft is partly boxed in in the centre of the view. A bolter is behind but has lost its bolting cloth. A set of wooden blocks hanging from the ceiling would have been used to handle the stones.
Haddenham Great Mill
Haddenham Great Mill is a preserved tower mill in the Cambridgeshire village of Haddenham. Built in 1803 south of the village it was one of two in the area. Sadly out of action by the mid 20th century. Restoration took place in 1996. Its large circumference resulted in a nice amount of room for the machinery to be fitted. On the stone floor are three sets of stones although one pair has been out of action for over 100 years. Currently the owners are restoring the mill, with the help of local craftsmen. Tasks include lifting the cap and replacing the iron circumference ring. The sails require 80 new shutters, new windows are being made and the outside is to be repointed.
