Fingle Mill Dig 2018: Grist Mills & Afternoon Tea

Thursday 4th October

7pm

Fingle Mill Dig 2018: Grist Mills & Afternoon Tea - Fingle Bridge Inn, 7pm

The community excavation that was undertaken in July exposed the floors, wheel pit and cog pit of the mill for the first time since its destruction 125 years ago. The archaeological evidence would suggest the mill had been raided for salvageable materials following the fire (mill machinery valued at £50 in 1893), but that a surprising amount survived, including a significant deposit of burnt grain. This talk will present the preliminary findings of the post-excavation analyses, and highlight the potential of the site for further work.
