There were even decorations adorning millstones and wheat was incorporated in those floral arrangements as a nod to the mill’s real purpose in life.

Steep steps were the only “trouble at mill” for arrangers carrying flowers and equipment.

“You have to go down them like you would a ladder,” said member Jo Gray. “You have to go backwards.”

Jo described the magnificent mill as “absolutely lovely” and said arrangers were delighted to hear their efforts earned good comments in the visitors’ book.
