The interior of Sithney Green watermill, 1958. The photograph shows the pit wheel, crown wheel, great spur wheel and stone nuts which are a typical nineteenth century arrangement. The cogs were of seasoned applewood, in the larger wheels, secured by wedges behind, and engaging with cast iron cogs. It was an almost noiseless arrangement. The mill was still at work in 1930 but it had become derelict by 1960.
