Blue Flower

The mill had its own blacksmith to make iron items such as locks, hinges, machinery parts etc.

Pictures show the blacksmith's shop area opposite the upper staunch where our swinging footbridge crosses the river. The last pictures show the brickwork remains of the forge and anvil stand.

Next to the blacksmith's shop was the boiling house, where bones were boiled to remove fat and gristle so they were ready for grinding.
