    Peal, the second best mill in town...

    Stopped by on our way up to the highlands... I've had several goes at this place over the past five years and never succeeded, until now :)

    I was overall quite impressed with the mill. Despite the rot and lacking any machinery (or anything at all really!) the fabric of the building was very nice indeed. Particularly lavish offices, with well proportioned rooms and some very fine woodwork, as well as a lovely mosaic floor, which I spent a few moments polishing for my photograph.

    The mills tower was rather interesting, containing a lovely example of a cast iron spiral staircase. The views however were less inspiring!

    (If I've got my bearings right...) If you were sitting in the window seat, that mirror would show you any deliveries coming or going on Victoria Road, without the indignity or inconvenience of turning round maybe?

    It was on the first story! I guess it must have been something like that... unless someone liked to catch a glimpse of their sweet reflection while gazing out the window!

    It just looked very odd in the position it was in, complete with decorative ironwork on top!
