The conversion of the Old Mill is coming along well. These photos were taken by my dad.

They're at photobucket Bazza. My dad took them as he lives closer than me. He says he'll keep an eye out when he passes and there'll be more as it nears completion.

That's the one Dawn. I wonder how long it was in ruins for - certainly for as long as I can remember. I would have thought that it would have been knocked down before it was ever renovated.

Hi Bazza, use the img version of the link from photobucket to display your pics on this site.
It's not advised though because it can use up a lot of band-width. It's best just to post the http link to your photobucket picture. No-one minds clicking on a link to the pic's but we would all be a bit brassed off if Admin overan his band-width allowance and the site was shut down. :cry:

Those photos are quite small. Some people's avatars are bigger. The issue with bandwidth is that it's photobucket's bandwidth, not mine. It would only be my bandwidth if they were hosted in my own webspace.

The important thing is the dimensions of the photo are not more than 400 wide. This distorts the frame of the board.

To get photos to display directly on here, use this format of code:

Code: [Select]

Great pictures of The Old Mill I had no idea it was being renovated It takes me back to my childhood years going for walks and daring each other to go in there I dont know if I ever had the bottle,also seeing it every day when I went to Comprehensive School Oh no more bad memories. Good that it is being put to good use at last Sue

Where is the mill located?
I can't ever remember there being one. Could be it's the old Alzheimer's at work.

Travelling towards Merrington from Dean Bank, after the end of the terraced houses on the right (north side) there are some Aged Miners bungalows. The Mill is behind the bungalows. Hope that helps tauldfeller.

Just been browsing some old slides I had and photos I took in 2001 / 2002

I was wondering what happened to the mill stones that where still inside ?

Have they been used within the building as a feature ?

Personally,   I am pleased that the mill has been repaired and put back into use , but I dont like the house extension ( Sorry)

If it had been stone clad as the mill,  it would look the part, and  even I would try to raise a mortgage to buy it ... 

Dont know if its still up for sale ?    but wasnt it  £375,000  ono  when it was first advertised ?
