MAINTENANCE AND THE REFITTING OF TWO SWEEPS 3 MAY 2009

On 3 May 2009 two sweeps that had been under maintenance were refitted to the stocks of the mill.

Certified rope access was utilised to fix the sweeps to the stocks, the sweeps being raised by a hand winch secured to a large concrete block in the ground. A band of volunteer mill enthusiasts assisted in the operation which was successfully completed.
