Sails turn on National Mills Weekend video

There is a short video (1min:29sec) on Flickr by Penny Steele of the sails turning on Saturday. Although the sails did turn by wind power earlier in the day (which unfortunately wasn’t captured on video) this clip shows them being cranked round from the inside by Paul Selwood, our millwright, assisted by Nick Weedon, to return them to their resting position, but it’s still good to see them actually turn.
