Blue Flower

An incredibly detailed model of the Bone Mill complex has been made by David Turner. First shown to the public at Mills Weekend in May 2018, the model is displayed at open days and events in our 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. The boiling house and blacksmith’s forge have realistic fire effects fitted by Graeme Brown, see the video.

Many of the buildings have a removable roof for views inside which show the grindstones, elevator and many other details. The water wheel section lifts away to show the wheel which was originally enclosed within the walls of the building as seen in the historic pictures.

The model will be on display at all public events and arranged visits including Heritage Open Days and National Mills Weekends. At other times the model resides at Narborough Museum where David is the Curator.
