An interesting article about brick and flint house building is here.
We arrived at the mill as a fine sheen of moisture was gently falling on the windscreen but got out to walk around nonetheless. I immediately walked over to a small river to take a photo and as I walked back was approached by an older lady who wanted to know what I was taking photos of. I introduced myself and discovered that she was Sandra Harte, the owner of the property. She was very friendly and chatted at length with Mum about the mill and my visit. I took advantage of this to continue snapping photos.
Sandra let us go ahead and wander around the grounds, asking her daughter to let us through the back where we could see the water mill.
We thanked Sandra for her hospitality and wished them a successful dinner, then headed back to Mum's house for dinner of our own and a large pot of tea.
