Mill Race 27/Aug/09


2009-08 Otterton Mill (2)

At Otterton Mill, on the River Otter, East Devon – one of the few working (commercial) watermills left in this country, splendid millers and bakers, home of great local food, and (in the spirit of declaring one’s interests) also the craft gallery where I sell some of my textile work 😉 .

This picture is from the courtyard bridge looking back up the mill leat to the wheel house – they were milling today so the mill race was in full spate. I took this photo about 5:30 pm, just as the light was starting to fade – I’m pleased with the trinity of the tenacious plants, the solid permanence of the stone and the rushing fluidity of the water underneath.
