I would think that this mill might be one of the tallest mills, not that I have been taking notes (measurements of) or anything it just felt that way, there were so many stairs, four levels, had me so curious to chat with someone ... I wonder? Very cool. Cute to recall, this was like the first or second mill we have been in with the virus going on - wearing a mask - it is not easy to breathe and makes it extra interesting when climbing stairs. My hubby took some really cool shots through the windows in the upper levels, had to share! Was shocked they worked out so well, I had to skip over several I wanted to share of the gears and wheels because they were so fuzzy??! Lighting is always a problem. Thanks, for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ;

A beautiful mill. We have one here, but it's hard to get to if one doesn't drive.

Interesting mill! Yes, the inner machinery is often in the dark.
