  1. Hi

    I visited Sarehole Mill a number of years ago with my class. I am looking forward to reading about how the mill works!

  2. water wheel is a hydidron system

    .It was used mainly in the Middle Ages for the purpose of extracting power from the flow of water. It consists of a large wheel. This wheel is either made of wood or of metal

    • Whooooo very good girls!!!!!!!

  3. the water wheel works with water it is either made of wood or metal. The water wheel works by the force of water when water goes onto the water wheel thats when it moves.

  4. The water mill is powered by water. It is used to move the heavy millstone and the millstone is so heavy you can’t pick it up.

  5. I think sarehole mill was very intresting because all the cogs and how it works

  6. A water wheel works when the force of the water hits the wheel. When the water comes down it creates hydro electricity.
