We hosted SPAB touring visitors this last weekend as part of Mills week and showed people around our heritage site where threshing, milling, awning and crushing. took place using water powered hydraulic machinery.

SPAB means Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings and Cragend Farm is 'ancient' with Victorian amendments.
