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.

Oh I know that feeling well. Big companies are great as they have IT people who can see just how good we are - in smaller outfits they don't have a clue so they think that when something goes wrong it's your fault.

That's why I am changing business!!! Setting up a website for parcel and pallet deliveries. A bit like Parcels2Go but better and cheaper(I hope). Will be called Speedshift.
