Paul Pablo Jackson,  Neil Jones,

Gary and Sara Gaskell for their assistance

The water wheels at the mill were powered with

water from the Low Dam higher up Washburn

Valley. This is the Valve house which controlled

the flow of water.

Loom weights can be made in any material ..like

natural rocks with holes in them but in the

industrial age they were usually made of lead.

 

The weights shown below are but a tiny sample

of finds from the fields of West House Mill.

 

Hooked weights 70 grams approx.

 

Rod weights 50 grams approx.

 

Large weights up to 500 grams

 

Huge weight over a kilogram

 

Tension weights of 50-100 grams

Nine more small lead bag seals found near what I think is a second

flax retting tank .. the ten seals above came from near the first tank.

 

 

What was in these bags is not known, as yet, perhaps bleach, or maybe

a disinfectant, or something mundane like tea or sugar for the workers.

(Staurt F.Elton says they are milk churn seals)

Nine distorted seals from West House - not bad out of 642 found.
