    Visited with Syme.

    We had gone out to have a look at a couple of National Trust places. Hardwick Hall and Stainsby Mill.
    Syme asked the invidulator if there were any other mills around the area, the guy gave us a lead to this flour mill at Cuckney.

    A fantastic little place, not much left really, a few stones and some kind of thrashing machine. Quite small but has 5 floors i think. I loved the place, it has so much character.
    We couldn`t make it up onto the top two floors as a thrashing machine had either fallen down or been thrown down knocking the woodedn staircase out.
    The floors and stairs are very bad, some dry rot and some wet rot, so we had to be rather carefull.
    Id not got the tripod, so all the photos are ISO1600 hence mega grain.
    The only info i can find out is that it was there in 1853 along with another mill used for cotton, this has now been converted into a school.

    As I said, I had a wander down here on Friday and spent an hour or so wandering round. The grounds are quite extensive and still seem to be looked after at the back of the Mill House (the grass looked like it had been mowed within the past few weeks. I took loads of photos, but not having my tripod with me meant that the quality on quite a few of them is less than impressive.
    The main house itself used to be a restaurant apparently, although it looks a bit small for that to me, but it would explain the presence of the old chest freezers outside. I will be going back again soonish to get some better photos as one of my work colleagues wants to have a look around as well.
