TL5966 : Stevens; Mill, Burwell

taken 5 years ago, near to Burwell, Cambridgeshire, Great Britain

Stevens; Mill, Burwell
Stevens; Mill, Burwell
This is a tower mill with four patent sails and fantail winding. The tower is tarred brick and clunch and the mill was built in 1820 and worked until c1955.

This is the bin floor. The main vertical sheft is on the right and the sack hoist is at the top on the left of centre. It is driven by belt from below. It is operated by pulling the diagonal rope on the left. Just to the left of the mainshaft the collection of ropes is a hands on demonstration of pulleys.

Photographed during National Mills Open weekend in 2016. My interest started in stationary steam but over the years has spread to include industrial archaeology in general but with a particular interest in power.
