BREASTSHOT MILL

Breastshot mills are a variation in the way the in which the water hits the wheel, in this case its just above its midpoint and is built this way because the landscape does not permit a good head of water to enable an Overshot mill.
The model is shown here during its consruction, the 'rusty 'wheel is made from 1/32" ply
Looking across to the Breastshot mill, the Powder mill is below and a powder storage bunker can be seen in the hillside
