Statement of Interest

As noted in Donnachie, the mill ceased working in 1967, and was formerly powered from mill-pond and lade, replaced by turbine power in 1945, in turn replaced by electric motor in 1955. The square cast-iron plates of the kiln were last used in 1963. The mill had 4 sets of stones, 3 for meal, the other for beans. Converted to residential use, 2000.
