OUR NEW WAGON 2012

We have also added a lovely new out side bedroom in the form of a beautiful Gypsy wagon which people staying at the Mill Retreat Centre can choose if they want, it has a luxurious huge queens size bed inside and a cosy heater, with stained glass window, and is situated just next to the river and lake, it is just so fun to be in, so we think it will be an idyllic option for people who like to be closer to nature. See photos of outside and inside the wagon.

 

 

Grounds

 

The Mill  Retreat Centre is a spectacular Centre with large 30 acres grounds, a 10 acre lake, and 1 mile of river banks,  with wild wetlands habitat, woodland habitat and river wildlife habitat and lake habitat all combined to providing an extraordinary rich area of plants and wildlife all in one place. The centre has a wonderful grounds to explore and go for walks and relax.

 

Hydro electricity

We are in the process of being set up using the river and the original Mill works.

See Photos below  of old Mill wheel in the middle of being renovated. 

 

The vertical axis turbine is inside the metal casing and the sits in the bottom of the large "water room" which is then filled by the river,  a bit lake a huge bath Then the turbine acts like a huge plug hole at the bottom of the water room,  the river siphons through this hole creating high pressure which turns the turbine inside. It is a very sophisticated and well designed system considering it was made over 120 years ago.
