    Arrow Horsebridge Mill June 09


    Horsebridge Mill...a bit out in the middle of nowhere and although there's not a fat lot left behind, there is a lot of nice decay and a big water wheel around the back. Visited with Patch, Chubs and one of their friends who kindly drove us.

    There were lots of potentially fatal holes in the flooring and the sound of rushing water below. If you were unlucky, you could mangle yourself horrible on the floor below and if doubly unlucky you could be mangled AND drowned.









    These cheques were littered everwhere for some reason.


    An actual water wheel!




    A bridge over troubled water...well actually the bridge itself is trouble and you too could be in huge trouble and/or very wet if you decided to cross it.

    You're right-that unit floats in mid air. Never noticed it til you pointed it out.

    Excellent find, Dystopia. Great looking building and waterwheel.
    Love the 'optical illusion' pic.

    Sadly didn't see much in the way of machinery and the place was overgrown where the wheel was.

    I love this. Is this all natural decay?

    It's all over.
