Caught by the River

A Celebration of Mills

13th February 2013

As previously mentioned on Caught by the River (28 January, 2013), Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th May 2013 will be National Mills Weekend, an annual festival of our milling heritage. Writer, angler and friend of the river Charles Rangeley-Wilson has come up with an idea for a project that we hope you – our dear readers – might be keen to get involved in.

The response to the first post has been great but please keep ’em coming in. We particularly liked this contribution from Brian Allsopp in Edinburgh:

There is an old Gunpowder mill a few miles outside of town in Roslin, Scotland. It is down in the Roslin Glen and made use of the River Esk for nearly 150 years (1801/1803 to 1954 according to some sources).
