Watching Brief (2012)

NB 24450 46325 A watching brief was undertaken in 2012 during works to alleviate drainage problems in the kiln. The kiln was built in 1996 to demonstrate the corn drying and milling process, and during the construction process a fragment of wall was exposed. The excavation of the drain from the kiln door to the stream revealed further walling. This was identified as the undercroft of a horizontal mill predating the existing mill, which was built in the 19th century. A full record of the masonry was produced.
