My personal posts to the website have nothing whatsoever to do with my employer. All comments are my own. Period. Now the important stuff. My first post isn’t about woodworking. It happens to be about social networking and sites like this and how they can help good, worthy causes. Let me explain. This morning when I logged onto my comp...

The “Island” is the land that accompanies Lethenty Mill. It stretches from its widest part at the Mill to its narrowest about half a mile up the Lochter Burn. It used to be very important to the Mill; water was collected in a long narrow channel leading to a dam near the Mill, and it could be released into a variety of channels under and around the Mill which were arranged to feed the water to the two water wheels or back into the water course (the Lochter) if the system was full and li...

You will find them under the heading “Current Events” in the navigation bar.
