Yes the place iam talking about is an old water mill . I rebuilt the huge water wheel and all the sluice gates etc , It was amazing to see it all come to life as I let the water back into the leat.
There was 3 stories of wooden cog wheels amd millgear etc all turning , they put a big glass panell in the floor so you stand there and watch it all working . it made me feel that we have moved backwards in so many ways with tecknology.
