HERITAGE - At the Burgh Heritage open meeting at the mill on Monday, October 14, Norman Barker showed a fascinating video about different methods of ploughing by horses, steam cultivators and tractors.

These alternate with a meeting with a speaker.

Any proceeds will go to the mill’s funds. The meetings are open to all.

Also at the mill on alternate Friday evenings at 7pm there are bingo sessions with raffle and refreshments. Again any proceeds go to the welfare of Burgh Mill.
