This third edition of the guide to the mill is now illustrated
by 16 photographs, many of them in colour, together with seven
black and white line diagrams. Starting with a short foreword, it
continues with a brief history of the mill, it's restoration and
the outside buildings. This is followed by details related to the
water supply, including the problems in maintaining the supply,
and the waterwheel.
A description of the inside of the mill describes the various
items of milling machinery that can be found on the ground or
Machinery Floor, the first or Stone Floor and the second floor or
Garner. Diagrams show how the waterwheel and gearing convert the
power of the water into the rotation of the millstones and how the
miller could vary the quality of the meal these produced. There is
a section giving details of the dressing of the millstones,
including a photograph of a surviving millstone dressing machine.
An annotated line diagram shows the location of the milling
machinery in the mill , followed by a glossary of the machines.
The guide ends with a poem written by a past miller and a map of
the mill and surrounding area.
