Ancient millwheel discovery near Creeslough
One of the old mill wheels laying in the bog.
A link to our local heritage was unearthed recently with the discovery of a number of partially completed millwheels.
The hand carved stone wheels were found in a bog land area near Creeslough by local hill walkers. This area was where the wheels would have been manufactured many years ago.
The important local history site is where skilled masons travelled to this area of flat faced granite rock slabs where they marked out the circle and painstakingly chiselled the rugged face until it revealed the wheel outline.
