Artist's Description

No not the sound of a camera shutter but the sound of the small mills, hence known as ‘Click Mills’, that were once common in the north of Scotland and its isles.
They are thought to be Scandinavian in origin and probably date back a thousand years or so and remained relatively unchanged, as did life in general, for most of that time. A handful have been restored to working or near-working condition in the Outer Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland. This one is one of group at Huxter (near Melby) on the westernmost edge of mainland Shetland.
The mechanism was very simple: a stream was channelled underneath the mill where it turned a simple paddle wheel, connected to a shaft which turned the millstone. The ‘click’ came from the wooden ‘ratchet’ that shook the grain hopper to release grain into the millstone.
The marsh marigolds are another feature of Shetland in the late Spring – carpets of them form in all the streams and boggy areas!

Thanks for looking.
