Stones Mill | Wickhampton Marshes

I’m down to the final couple of mills that are part of the renovation bid that I’m shooting images of. The weather was pretty good yesterday, so I headed out onto Wickhampton marsh and made my way to Stones Mill – a walk that saw me nearly¬†fall into a dyke, end up with mud around my ankles and as I walking through the reed beds, get the shock of my life as a deer jumped up and ran – I’m not sure who was more surprised!

The wind was howling across the marshes. I spent around four hours at the mill, waiting for some decent light and trying to take shelter from the biting cold.. Although the sun was shining, the sky and light actually lacked some depth, so I may end up going back sometime soon.

However, I got this image which demonstrates the surroundings quite nicely.
