THE BIN FLOOR AND CAP

From here you can view what was originally two separate levels with a ceiling at around eight feet above the floor level. This separation would have prevented dust from the mill reaching the cap machinery, and grease from the machinery from falling into the grain.  The absence of this ceiling now allows a clear view into the cap.

The floor area would have housed a number of large wooden bins into which the grain was tipped ready to feed the millstones below. The grain would have been lifted to this floor using a sack hoist. There is now no trace of these items.

There is a display board to assist understanding of the cap machinery.
