A New Pentrough and Penstock

The pentrough, penstock and sluice gate installed during the early 1970's restoration had all deteriorated, with water regularly leaking from the millpond. Using 'green' unseasoned oak timber, these have now been replaced by a professional millwright. Their first proper use was during the first 2014 Open Day on 11th May.

The pentrough flooring was renewed after the last Open Day of 2014, ready for 2015.
