    Arrow Abandoned Farm & Mill, Gloucestershire


    A long disused mill and abandoned farm I looked around recently.

    Not many cows now.

    The remains of a very early harvister, the grain belt is on the floor.

    The last hay bale for a long time

    The water wheel.

    Can you see the mill, it's in there somewhere!

    The other sde of the mill

    The mill pond, which still holds water and flows down the leat over the water wheel. The little person didn't fall in!

    Beautiful scenes there and well shot!:)
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    What a gorgeous place. Love the waterwheel. Is that still moving or is the water just running over it?
    Lovely find. :)

    I thought I'd add a few of my pics taken today. A gorgeous day for visiting the woods but spoilt by hundreds of horseflies.

    The spillway to the wheel


    Nestling in the undergrowth is part of the control gear for the sluice which used to allow water down to the wheel













    The dam is about 15 or so feet high although only the top couple of feet are used for the overshot wheel. Perhaps there was an undershot wheel here first? Anyway you'd want to patch up the dam before you used it nowadays.






    The map shows another mill pond slightly to the north east but all that remains now is the remnants of a wall and a socking great bank which has been gut through.


    Look out, we're being invaded
    Hang on to your head
    We're being raided.

    Great to see some more pics, Crickley. Fab site for a ramble and explore...shame about the horseflies, though! The waterwheel really is lovely. :)
