Hawkshead Hill Bobbing Mill 2010 https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/ Hawkshead Hill Bobbing Mill 2010 1893 photo of the Bobbing Mill when still in production. https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102062231 102062231 Lyns retirement home. From the main road there is no sign that an old Mill exists, just a concealed entrance. https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102062221 102062221 Even crossing the fields attached to the Mill you cannot see it unless you get out of the car and skirt around the land. https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102058553 102058553 The first view arriving is the door to this building and then you swing round to the left to the car park where this photo was taken. This is the top storey of the Mill and is now the main bedroom.It once housed a family. https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102058550 102058550 The beck approaches the Mill Room and wheel. https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102058539 102058539 The water begins to fall ...... https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102058541 102058541 .... and cascades towards the Mill Wheel. https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102058548 102058548 There was originally a wooden wheel that produced 30 horse power. https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102058547 102058547 A metal wheel was brought in parts by pony from the Copper Mines in Coniston. It only produced 15 horse power which disappointed the owners and lead to bobbins only being produced after that. https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102058549 102058549 looking to the Mill Room from the kitchen https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102058556 102058556 Steps from Wheel House. Two more living accomodations would be down here. The Mill housed five families https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102058557 102058557 An outside Nettie , as we call them in the North East. The only one for the 5 families working here. Pleased to say the Mill now has a more modern (ish ) indoor one. https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102058551 102058551 The beck here would have been dammed to form a Mill Pond. https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102058552 102058552 My own private car park. https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102075360 102075360 Up at 7.15am forst morning to catch this cloud inversion. https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102058537 102058537 I took several photos of this but can't decide which one is the best. ( perhaps I will let Gary have a peep at them to choosethe best one.) https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102058538 102058538 Three Roe deer were in the field but only quick enough to catch this baby. https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102058540 102058540 Bross enjoying the freedom of the extensive land around the Mill. https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102058555 102058555 Whats he got his eye on ? https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102062222 102062222 ah, so thats what ! https://raybradshaw.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=102062224 102062224 The following photos are of views from the field atached to the Mill.
