Blue Flower

An incredibly detailed model of the Bone Mill complex has been made by David Turner. First displayed to the public at Mills Weekend in May 2018, the model is housed in our new visitor centre, The Little Mill, on a stand which is a replica of an original grindstone.

The model includes the river with sluice gates and barges plus all the mill buildings including the boiling house and blacksmith’s forge which now have realistic fire effects fitted by Graeme Brown, see the video.

Many of the buildings have removable roofs for views inside which include the grindstones and elevator. The water wheel section lifts away to see the wheel which was originally enclosed within the walls of the building.

The model will be on display at all public events and arranged visits including Heritage Open Days and National Mills Weekends.
