Trustees of Dalgarven Mill Museum delighted about donation from Dalry Parish Trust

Museum members receiving the cheque

The Trustees of Dalgarven Mill Museum are delighted to acknowledge this donation from Dalry Parish Boundary Trust sponsored by Community Windpower which has made the rebuilding of the water wheel on which we rely a possibility.

This is the third rebuilding since 1985, but the first time we have been able to use Scottish elm from trees grown in Perthshire and Dumfries and Galloway and sawn in Dalkeith. This is also the first time we have used timber straight from the saw, and although we had a few teething problems, the end result is nothing short of magnificent.

The mill dates back to 1203, with major additions in 1622 and1880 until restored in 1985 but only help from the Community, such as this latest grant will guarantee their continued survival.

The museum members can be seen receiving the cheque from members of the trust.
