Stevens' Mill,Burwell - stone nut
Stevens' Mill,Burwell - stone nut
This shows the cast iron stone nut that drives a pair of millstones above. It sits on a wooden bridge tree. The grey tentering beam below lifts the runner stone to control the fineness of the meal. This is in turn under the influence of a centrifugal governor acting on the grey lever running to the centre top edge. The drive belt is to the governor.

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.
