The Mullion Cove waterwheel, taken in 1930. The photograph shows the waterwheel attached to the adjoining building and the initials JW can clearly be seen on the gable end. The waterwheel is unusual in that there were no crown wheels. The main shaft was paralleled with the wheel axle and the two pairs of stones were set along the wall to the left of the photograph.
