Stevens' Mill, Burwell - ground or 'meal' floor
Stevens' Mill, Burwell - ground or 'meal' floor
This where the ground meal came down chutes to be bagged. If sold straight from the stones it would whole meal. It would need passing through a wire machine or bolter to separate flour from bran. The red gear top right is where power could be fed into the mill from an external engine on still days.

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.
