ICR was awarded by competitive tender to design, manufacture and install a replacement oak axle tree for the water wheel.
Building on a long standing conservation engineering support relationship with the National Trust ICR undertook this complex and challenging engineering project.
The existing waterwheel was suspended and supported in-situ on a bespoke scaffold while the rotten axle tree was carefully removed from the mill.
The new axle tree was constructed offsite and was finally manoeuvred into position during January 2017.
