MOULTON Mill took 74 hours to construct using about 10,000 matchsticks – or at least that’s what went into a superb model.

Modeller John Wilds (80) had little more than a picture on a tea towel to work from when he started, and that depicted the building minus sails, which were recently put back on. So he was delighted to discover that his model matches up very well to the original.

John (pictured, back left) lives near Newark but visits the mill regularly because his neighbour is related to the former miller, John Biggadike (right), a replica of whom is included in the model.

With them at the presentation of the model to the mill were Friends of Moulton Mill Ray Andrew and Neil Everitt (front).
