Stopped by when there was no milling staff about and as I guide in an old watermill would have been nice to swap some stories. The resident tinsmith was very friendly and gave me quite a bit of local info.

We visited a great museum and witnessed a cool demo of wooden shingles being cut by a machine that was almost 100 years old. Hats off to the volunteers that manned the machinery and museum.
