Work on our new mill progresses steadily, the latest development being the shotblasting of the stone walls in the Victorian warehouse space to the rear of the complex. When we moved in to the mill this space was partitioned off with damp plasterboard corridors and bodged tarpaulin roof repairs, and little of what we now see was visible. Today’s shotblasting has revealed the original cotswold stone walls in all their glory, off-setting beautifully the original multi-paned Victorian windows (which we are also restoring). A fascinating discovery is the small carved cross on a stone on one of the inner corners. Perhaps a Victorian stonemason’s blessing on the building, or an early bit of salvage from a nearby church?
