One of the most interesting (and inaccessible) remains in the mill is the clock. It is electro-mechanical (electricity winds it up, effectively) and a lovely thing to behold. And to top things it off, it rings a large bell, which was inaccessible to a large fellow like myself.
Carved into the wood supports for the clock were the names of generations of fitters who had no doubt been sent up to carry up a spot of routine maintenance. Which made it all the more interesting to have a rummage round the maintenance locker, replete with chains, lubricant and a spare cog.
And lastly, the oil can – a ruggedly constructed thing that looked very much like an apprentice project at some point.
