An old water wheel overgrown and seemingly lost at the rere of a terrace in the town of Moville, Co. Donegal was captured by Mr. French on a cabinet sized slide. It looks like the head of water is escaping off to the side but is that deliberate or due to neglect and decay? I suspect that this is one that is no longer standing!
