Aldie Mill built circa 1807

Over 270 years after the Chapman – Beverley Mill was constructed there is still much to be learned about the structure.  Photos taken inside the building before the 1998 fire give us the best clues as to how the mill ground grain, but studying the inner workings of other mills in the area is also helpful.  Nearby Aldie Mill, built around the turn of the 19th Century, provides us with a great idea of how mills of this era worked.  Take a look at this video to see Aldie at work!
