Some recent images and text from the Mellor Mill project:
After much discussion, between Bob H-T and John Riley, it was worked out that the centre projection of the mill, at ground level is in fact a stable for visitors. John has produced a 3D drawing of the likely layout of the wheel pit, cellars and stable. Visitors to the mill would have arrived either on horseback or by horse drawn carriage. On arriving at the steps leading to the main entrance their transport would have been collected from them. Their horse, taken into the visitors stable, would have been groomed, fed and watered ready for the visitor leaving on their return journey.
