Things are moving on at Mellor Mill
We have now settled down after submitting our stage 2 bid to HLF. We will hear the result in September.
The focus now is to complete the first building. That is the Boiler House and Engine House at the North end of the main Mill Complex. You will see from the photographs that things are moving on very well with much of the engine beds and the boiler supporting brickwork already exposed and ready for conservation.
There have been ten students from Aquinas on work experience down at the mill this week, plus the weekenders workers, together they made much progress, thanks.
We still meet at the site every Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 4pm for volunteer sessions.
Look forward to seeing you down there.
The following video is trial video, we hope to incorporate more videos on the website.
