29.10 – going on mill hunt

I went on a mill hunt today with pauline , alison & morgan- we traced the origins of the photo that alison brought for me. We talked for ages about the old mill owners house- it has such a dominant place in everyones memories,

memories of peeping over the garden wall,seeing chandeliers and an umbrella stand, steps leading to the ice house, the delapidated mill buildings where they would have a bonfire on Bonfire Night, swimming in the lodge sitting on a huge tractor inner tube, swinging on a massive swing

and now

casting dogs after that
