    Default Woodland Mill, Cornwall



    This is my first report on here, hopefully I have done everything right

    There is virtually no history which i have been able to find on this mill, except that it was first recorded in 1813 and was a water-powered flour and grist mill. The cast iron wheel, formally with wooden spokes and hub was built by Oatey and Martyn, Wadebridge.
    I visited this place in Autumn last year and absolutely loved it. Its located in the bottom of a beautiful wooded valley, making the building very atmospheric. There is a single house near by and part of the ground floor seems to be used to store fencing materials. The exterior of the mill is nice enough but the real treasure is the interior, complete with all its original machinery which clearly hasn't worked for many decades.
    This was my first explore with my Nikon D600 which I unfortunately didn't know how to use at the time so my interior photos aren't the best.

    Not bad for a first report, the photos inside look okay as well.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    A very nice set and there ain't nothing wrong with your interior images (I speak as a professional photographer in my working days). They clearly show how the interior mechanism worked and the huge size of the individual parts that were required to take the full force of the water when the mill race was in full spate. Just one thing - why spoil such brilliant images by sticking such an obtrusive 'watermark' in the frame? Fortunately I could view the images by scrolling down and hiding the obtrusion without loosing the sense of the image!

    Very nice, great shots and an interesting location. The timber teeth on the gear wheels are always photogenic. :)
