Newsletter 87, Winter 2009 Hampshire Mills Group
 

Quizzical Corner
 

Here are the answers to the Autumn Quiz:

1) When asked to "show his mettle" the millwright or stone dresser would show the backs of his hands thus displaying the chips of stone embedded in the skin as a means of proving he works well and hard at his task, and therefore worthy of payment.
 

(2)  Wallace and Gromit operated "Top Bun Bakery" in "A Matter of Loaf and Death".
 

   

Here are the Winter Brain Teasers :
 

 

1. A famous soldier was a former owner of this mill.  Can you name him and the mill - and do you know where he is buried?

2. What is an "Annular Sail"?  Where will you find one in Hampshire?

3. Fulling mills in Devon are known by another name - do you know what it is?
