Industrial Heritage In Action

Outside water wheel

This 8 ft. ' overshot' is the smallest of the surviving waterwheels restored to running order at the streamworks, and which originally drove equipment in the mill. Waterwheels were used here to drive machinery & pumps from around 1500 to 1970. No foundry mark can be traced - perhaps hidden under paint.
