It’s a breeze!

by 3arn0wl

The fantail had turned the ogee cap, and the 200-year-old mill had got the wind in its sails: it was a good day for milling.

Noel Tall had got wind of the Open Day at Geoff and Ella Miller’s Mill in Upper Snodding. She was really looking forward to milling a stone for the bag.

Visitors enjoyed winding the pulleys to take up the grain, and watched as it was fed through the hole in the runner stone;  waited for it to miraculously transubstantiate in the furrows;  before the flour worked its way out to the edge.

And Geoff had just got wind.
