THE FURRIE GLEN (23/03/10)

Well here we are back in Patterdale, a pleasant relief after the hell of Windemere. Not hell, that’s being unkind, it’s just different. Amazing how different considering it’s a days walk or an hours drive away.

  4. Now that's a nice blog great mix of the countryside and its workings. its amazing how many of these old machines still work. did you get the turbines manufacturer. it looks similar to the one that drives the looms in Penmachno woolen mill, where I had the pleasure of renovating in the 80s including the turbine that was originally made in Germany. and parts could be had from the same manufacturer.

    and you never mentioned the moss stone weighted gate, or was it an old 56lb weight. when doing the oak gates in the Snowdon national park I used window sash weights two did the trick anymore than that the gate could be used as a guillotine,

  6. Keith, the light is me in those shots, comes of having wet weather.

    Tony, the turbine is built by Gilkes of Kendal. Odd not more use is made of water power. Less intrusive than the damn windmills half of which seem to do bugger all.
    The weight for the gate is a boulder drilled with a rag bolt leaded in.
