A rustic old mill with the wheel turning so fast that it is but a blur to end this weeks posting. Such a scene was always a great favourite of painters and photographers but sadly they are scarce as hens teeth these days!

Somehow (we have found that it's best not to ask :) ) derangedlemur identified this as Anamoe Mill, near Glebe in County Wicklow....

    No, it is not that the wheel is turning so fast, but the Exposure Time was long enough to cause blurred water, even on the river, in the foreground.

    Somewhere round Glendalough or Laragh, I suspect.

    Hmm. This was where I thought it was, but it's the wrong way round: www.google.com/maps/@53.0124806,-6.3279962,136m/data=!3m1...

    Hard one today - there were mills all over the place in 1870. https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] older 6" colour map shows that Annamoe mill would be longer to the right...

    Of course I could be barking up completely the wrong tree - the other area it looks like is Tollymore or Bryansford.

    The old mine crushing mill at Glenmalure has the same sort of stonework. Let's see if we can find a picture. Edit - I can't find one, but as far as I remember, it's not a T-plan. More edit - Loads of pictures if you fix the typos. It's not Glenmalure.

    Actually, now that I've found the Lawrence shot of Annamoe, I think it could be it again: catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000326128

    Mentioned in an 1822 book; the author Laurence Sterne was swept through the mill race and wheel paddles, and survived - books.google.com.au/books?id=AqhCAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA128&am... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurence_Sterne

    Yes, caught the motion blur of the river and mill water but, maybe a calm day, the tree leaves are sharp. a pretty scene
