|An icy January scene from 2010|
This, the upper mill, is the only survivor of at least 4 mills that have existed in the valley over the centuries. The earliest reference to 'The mill of Poltuske’ was in a document dated 1396 so mills and Poltesco go back a very long way! The other mills, such as the lower mill behind the education barn, are now no more than ruined walls and depressions where there were once wheel pits.

I'm sure all the millers and farmers who have known the mill over the centuries would be satisfied to know it is still there and cared for, and getting a new roof!
