Waterwheel repairs at Heatherslaw Mill

The Northumberland Gazette (26 Nov, 2020) reported on much needed repairs that have been recently undertaken to keep the waterwheel turning at Heatherslaw Mill.

Head Miller, Dave Harris-Jones, has seen orders increase by 250% on normal demand during the second lockdown and the waterwheel has been working hard to power the machinery.

It is almost 50 years since the Mill was restored to working order, this set of repairs  were to replace the bearings that support the main waterwheel. The Mill was grateful to receive support for these essential works from the Society for the Preservation of Ancient Buildings Mill Repair Fund.
