In celebration of the engineers and millwrights who built and now restore and maintain Whitchurch Silk Mill, Nigel Spender of G & H Spender, will be at the Silk Mill to talk about the recent conservation of the Mill’s historic waterwheel. At the mill the engineering and original machinery is very much in evidence. The working water wheel turns, harnessing the power of the River Test, while skilled weavers use the historic tappet and dobby looms. Nigel will be on hand to talk about the many crafts used to preserve the Grade Two* Listed Regency Water Wheel and the critically endangered craft of Mill Wrighting.
