    The History
    Guyzance mill was constructed in the early 19th century and was a water powered
    corn mill. It is grade 2 listed and there has been a mill on the site since 1336.

    It is a three storey stone structure on a rectangular plan of 34 feet by 20 feet.

    The Visit
    I was in the area for a 2 night road trip/break and this was one of the sites I
    had earmarked to go check out. The mill is structurally pretty sound and in
    fair shape. There is next to nothing left in there but three milling stones do remain.

    The Photos.
    Well these shots were taken with my newest acquisition - the diminutive Pentax Q.
    A camera who's sensor is smaller than a gnats left testicle... I think, phone cameras
    aside, this has the smallest sensor of any camera. Given this image quality should
    be pretty poor on paper/in theory. I also didn't help myself by not taking a tripod
    into the mill with me so was shooting hand held at very high ISO (which
    should guarantee noisy images) and hand held - which should result in
    not very sharp images as I do not have a very steady hand.

    Well without further ado here are the piccies.
