watermills Daniels mill waterwheel turning once again

After the severe flooding in the area last year, the huge 40ft diameter waterwheel at Daniels Mill, Bridgenorth has been out of action. Following work by Adam Marriott, the wheel is once again turning, and work on the pentrough and stone nuts should soon result in all 3 pairs of stones being back working very soon.

Check out these videos of the the wheel turning and the stones in action.

Update:[5/6/08] The SPAB Annual report 2007 notes that "At Bridgenorth in Shropshire, the millpond of Daniels' Mill was filled, and the wheel damaged, by thousands of tons of ballast washed off the adjacent Severn Valley Railway".
