Southern Germany Peter, It is so great hearing from you, and thank you for stopping by and enjoying these old ruins. Yes indeed, these places still call out my name, and I can't resist them. I have actually seen a sketch of what the old Mill once looked like, and it was quite grand. Again, I'm so glad you enjoyed the shot, and thank you kindly for your interest and nice words. I hope life is treating you well, and I shall look forward to catching up with you more soon! Best wishes to you from the USA! :)

PeterPrivatebox, I had two Peters to comment right behind each other, so I had to address you with your full user name! Thank you for visiting and enjoying this Mill. As usual, you noticed every detail, and I sure thank you for your generous critique. I am quite eager to come and see the link that you've provided, and I shall do so as soon as I post this comment. Thank you again for stopping by, and may you have a wonderful weekend! My best wishes to you! :)
