Roman Water Mill . A short distance from the harbour at Pagnorvaria is the local water mill, just off the river Peg. The river is diverted down the ‘leat’ and a timber ‘sluce’ controls the rivers flow to the ‘undershot’ wheel which is turned by the power of the water. As the wheel turns the pit wheel insidealso turns. The pit wheel has ‘teeth’ on it which works like a gear with the shaft. This then turns the stone ‘nut’ in the stone case. Add some lego grain and with a few turns you end up with lego grain….. (This model was inspired after a visit to the Museum of London, whether there is a similar model, not in lego) . Internal view, Gemellus is loading some flour onto the wagon which will then go to Flavius the baker in town. The large doors of the mill are opened and Gemellus is busy at work while is boss Plautus checks up on progress. Closer view of the Stone casing and the stone ‘nut’. The pit wheel good some ancient technology. The mill has good access to the fields, town and the harbour as it is sited on the main road from the harbour and is also right next to one of the roads leading into town. Next to the mill is the small orchard. Closer view of the ‘leat’, ‘sluce’ and the water mill. Overview of the mill, leat and the river Peg View of the water mill from the other side of the orchard. It’s the time of year for harvest and Capaneus and Apollodorus are at work picking fruit from the tress before taking it into town where they will sell it at the market.
