Cobbs Mill 7th September 2013

On a Saturday morning a small group of engine enthusiasts got together to run the large Tangye gas engine that SEAMS members helped restore a few years ago.

The event was a private visit by the Somerset Mills Group, who were doing a Sussex Mills weekend tour. Cobbs was one of the first they viewed and enjoyed a good hour looking at the mill and the engine before it was time for them to move on to the next venue.

The engine was then bedded down for the Winter. It is hoped that SEAMS can tie in a gas up next year with some special event there for the new owner.
