Calling all joiners – could you help repair our milling wheel?

We are currently looking for someone with experience to help repair the milling wheel at Cogglesford Watermill.

Over a period of time the paddles on the wheel have become brittle and broken, and are in need of repair.

Cogglesford Watermill has been producing flour in the area for over 1000 years and is thought to be the only Sherriff’s Watermill still in operation in England.

We want to keep its heritage alive and give the wheel a new lease of life.

Millwrights in the area appear few and far between so we are seeking someone experienced in this type of joinery, or a retired millwright who has the skills to pass on and help repair the damage.

For further information please get in contact with Jeffery Kenyon on 01529 414155.
