The only working model in Ireland of an early Medievial horizontal water-driven corn mill, is a 1/10 scale model that replicate a similar type mill that operated in the Drum area in medieval times. The actual work on the model was carefully executed by an expert craftsman in wood – Mr Tom Cunney. In operating this model, electricity is used to raise the sluice which in turns diverts the water through the millrace, to the waterwheel, thus allowing the mill to commence working.
