Hockley Mill

 

Ruth Andrews

 

 

On Wednesday 3 August the usual work party had a break from Longbridge to work at Hockley.  The floating grass-like weed in the headrace which had been puzzling me for some time had grown a few flowers and identified itself as Sparganium emersum (unbranched bur-reed) as opposed to Sparganium erectum (branched bur-reed).  Ivor cleared the hydrangea off one of the windows and exposed the rotten timber of the window frame.  It looked quite good before he did it!  We also lifted a pane of glass on the stones floor which had slipped and had admitted some tendrils of the same hydrangea.
