Last week we visited Churchill Forge, near Kidderminster, with Andy McKeown to video and record the amazing sounds of the waterwheels and machines there.
Churchill Forge water mill was one of the last working water powered forge mills in Britain, producing metal tools such as spades, shovels and ladles until the early 1970s.
It was very interesting to compare the machinery and sounds to Forge Mill!
We also really enjoyed the display of some of the beautiful print stamps they used for their catalogues. We will be using the new footage in the next Scour video installation event on Nov 16th.
Many thanks to Bryony for her warm welcome and showing us around the forge.
