We took our French guests to Stretton Water Mill. West Cheshire Museums were able to provide a French-speaking guide.
The group learned (mostly in French) about how flour was milled in past centuries. One of our visitors, Pierre, was particularly interested as he is a retired miller himself, albeit in a more modern flour mill in Brittany.
Had it been a sunny day we could have sat on the benches by the lake afterwards – but the weather wasn’t so good and we were obliged to retire to the Cock O’Barton for drinks!
