Reinforcing the great spur wheel at Heage Tower Mill

Alan Gifford comments: "The great spur wheel is all wooden and very old. It was originally fitted with a double row of wooden cogs to drive the stone nuts. These had been removed long ago and replaced with bolt on iron teeth segments. It was decided to retain the gear and to replace the segments but in order to be able to mill flour using it reinforcing plates of custom made SG iron were inserted between the arms."
