You may have seen this imposing building during your travels in the Great Haseley area of Oxfordshire. Sadly, it has fallen into neglect and the years have taken their toll. A major restoration project is now underway, aiming to return this historic building to its former glory. Follow the progress of the restoration in our blog....

The curb begins to take shape

So, the nine sections for the new curb have been cut and pre-drilled for their holding down bolts. After checking the layout on the ground, the sections were then hoisted to the top of the mill and laid into place. Thankfully, everything lines up (never in doubt!) The next job will be routering a channel for the sections of metal ring which will be sunk into the curb, providing a 'track' on which the cap can rotate.

Hoisting, a time consuming two-stage process for each section
