Hockley Mill

The usual gang had an enjoyable day showing visitors around Hockley Mill on Heritage Open Day, 10 September.

 

One early arrival was Andrew Borland who travelled from Cwmbran specially to visit the mill.  He stayed for most of the day, examining and photographing the site, and has now sent me a CD with many excellent images to add to our archive. 

 

 

This is the crown wheel at the top of the short upright section of the drive shaft.

 

 

 

 

He mentioned that Arrow Mill in Kingsland, Herefordshire and Cleobury Mill in Cleobury North, Shropshire also have horizontal sections of drive shaft.  Does anyone know of any others?

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the classic view of Hockley (right):
compare it with Arrow Mill (below left) and Cleobury Mill (below right).
