Keeping a mill in good order is rather like painting the Forth Bridge. It can often be an expensive and complicated undertaking. A mill is a combination of building and machine, with several moving parts; repairs to a mill are less straightforward than a to a static structure such as a house or barn.
An important skill can be identifying weaknesses in a mill before they turn into problems. This saves time, money and unnecessary worries in many cases!
Our wide experience of mills throughout the UK and abroad, and familiarity with potential problems and their solutions, allows Bonwick Milling Heritage Consultancy to offer this unique skill. Find out more by taking a look at some of our most recent projects.
