Update 1 September

Things move on apace at Old Mill Hotel. Work has started at the Hydrowatt factory in Germany on the fabrication of the waterwheel. See the pictures above and below. Fingers crossed the circumference of the shutters shown in the Old Mill 2 Blog will be a few centimetres larger than circumference of the actual waterwheel. It is important that the new wheel fits snugly into its housing so that as much energy as possible from the water flowing underneath it is used to turn the wheel to generate electricity.
