Trevarno Mill, Sithney, 1958. The photograph shows the waterwheel and overshoot. Trevarno was almost alone among Cornish Mills in having auger and belt conveyors for grain and flour. There were three pairs of stones and, at one time, an oil engine as auxiliary. The mill was working until about 1948. See also HESFM: 1977.601, 623 and 630.
