Watermills and how they work


A5 booklet, 32pp.

The harnessing waterpower was a determining factor in the development of the industrial revolution. In this book, containing many original line drawings and diagrams, John Vince describes the way watermills worked and how the skills of the millwright made this possible, the basic machinery of the corn mill and some of the processes which depend upon water power. Many mills have been preserved or restored so that visitors can see how this oldest source of re-newable energy has been used.
