What did the Romans ever do for us?
– aside from roads, law and hot baths that is? Well how about the waterwheel.
Rotating serenely under the flow of the Woulwe beck as it has since 1129 when the Lindekemale Mill begain its grinding work: producing flour, then paper with stone on stone powered by water. Once a great stride in efficiency, now obsolete technology. Whilst leisured diners feast within, we stroll by – red buggy under grey sky – admiring this monument to past ingenuity.
