The Norse Mills of Lewis


Hard cover, 120pp., extensively illustrated with many b/w photographs, sketches and drawings.

The book on horizontal mills – including their construction and use, where these mills may have come from, given that their every part is to be found in horizontal mills in many countries in Europe and beyond. The book contains a detailed gazetteer of over 250 sites where mills were once worked, along with a map reference for each and a simple grading of the condition of the sites. Almost all these sites are ruins of the former mill building and lade.
