Grain mill

Rising through four floors and powered by a six metre water wheel, this is one of the oldest and tallest grain mills surviving in Scotland. The machinery rescued from a mill in the Scottish Borders, shows the skills of the Victorian engineers or mill-wrights who designed such mills. The wheel turns daily when water supplies and personnel are available. The wheel is undershot and turns anti-clockwise, but we have no explanation for the video above which seems to show the inner and outer parts turning in different directions. Why not come and see for yourselves.
