Photographer's Note

This is the Mill cottage with its mill wheel which is in Miller's Wood mentioned in yesterday's post. (sounds like "The House that Jack Built" :o)) I have unsuccessfully tried to find information on the place and when the wheel was last used. The house appears to be occupied, but there was no-one there at the time. It could be a holiday cottage.
I had two shots to choose from but went for this one as I prefered the composition. I have put the other shot in the WS as it shows more information. The foreground in both images is white with frost. On this one you can just see the drop of the land on the right where the sluice is, and the top of the sluice gate. This was so, when the sluice gate was open, water from the river was diverted to activate the wheel. The WS also shows the River Esk as well as a better view of the sluice and gate.
