A flour mill

Mildred Cookson works as a miller at an old water mill on the Thames. This water mill was built two centuries ago, but it is still working. Here, the grain is turned into flour. And flour is used to make bread and cakes.

Mildred is telling us how the mill works.

The water mill is actually powered by this water wheel here. The river water flows and turns the wheel. The water wheel in turns moves all the machinery inside the mill.

The grain is brought to the mill in sacks. Mildred has to get it up from the ground floor up into the roof. So, the grain is stored on the roof.

Then, when the water wheel starts up, the grain flows down from the top floor to the stone floor. On the stone floor there are millstones, and the grain flows into the millstones.

The set of millstones without the covering on involves the top stone that goes round and the bottom stone that doesn’t move. The grain goes into the middle of the millstones, in between the top and the bottom ones. It is turned slowly into flour as it goes to the edge. Then, it is pushed down a hole in the floor down to the flour bags below.
