Bone and Flint Mill Stoke on Trent

This Mill was built in 1857 to supply ground bone and flint to the pottery industry in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire.
It has been restored with most of the original equipment so that visitors can see how bone and flint were ground in the 19th Century.
The beam engine is thought to be the oldest one in the Country.
I thought black and white images would capture a better feel for the industry than colour, whereas, the sepia images are more recent.
