‘Hands-on’ offer at watermill
Free hands-on workshops are being staged at Howsham Mill next weekend.
Trustees of the Georgian watermill on the River Derwent are staging the event to teach basic repair and renovation skills to those living in traditionally-built houses.
The workshops are taught by an expert conservation builder, and will cover pointing with lime mortar, slating and cobbling.
Places can be booked by contacting Mel Fox on 01759372853. Visit www. howshammill.ning.com for more details.
