watermills BBC's Restoration Final

The second series of Restoration held its live final on Saturday 8th August. The finalists included both Knockando Woolmill as winner of the Scottish regional heat, and Gayle Mill, North Yorkshire. These properties are both water powered, either by waterwheel, or as at Gayle Mill, by a Williamson turbine which replaced the waterwheel in 1879 and is reputedly the oldest working in situ turbine of its kind.

In the live voting, Gayle Mill came third.
