|Mill in the valley of the Río Susía||The lower part close to the river is the mill proper|
|The mill is now a second residence.
It's clear that the mill proper was less cared for than the living quarters.
Everything was locked up so I couldn't check inside, but as both cárcavo's
were empty, I'm not very optimistic about the machinery.
Water was not taken from the river. As far as I understand after our ramble in the surroundings the mill had two suppliers. One was probably the Fuen Calién, the other the small baranco coming from the hills behind the mill. Water surely was never abundant.
The entrance is on the lowest floor in fact already in the riverbed near the ford where the earthen road crosses the river. One of the door stones features an inscription. I read it as T P.
The cárcavo's discharge into the river. You'll find them few steps away from the door, empty. One cárcavo, closed with brick-work and a door, probably served as a cellar and is now flooded. The second cárcavo is still open and dry.
