Tidying up and getting ready to mill
The information board explaining the Lower Mill Machinery had fallen off the fence and needed to be re-displayed. We had been thinking for some time that it was in the wrong place, as visitors saw it on entering the mill and thought it referred to the main machinery. Ray and Bob decided to make a stand for it so it would be more relevant.
They then went on to repair part of the fence on the viewing platform.
Richard meanwhile got the machinery set up and ready to start milling. At the end of the afternoon the year's first delivery of wheat arrived and had to be manhandled across the yard and upstairs. Not good for the back - we must get the sack hoist working.
