In this photo, looking north to the entrance (headrace), we can see the bedrock that makes up the floor of the millrace. It consists of pre-cambrian crystalline limestone (marble) and skarn. The mill is built on this bedrock exposure located to the north of the original stream. The millrace and the stream channel leading to it blasted out using black powder.
The gentleman in the photo is Moel Benoit, a long time volunteer and director of The Delta Mill Society. Moel help keeps the mill in good shape doing maintenance jobs as required.
