Johnstone Mill, Long River - long since gone

    I just saw this image on Earles Picture Restoration Facebook page of the Long River Mill when it was called  Ye Olde Mill Museum.  When I knew this building in the late 1980s it was unused and becoming derilict - it was demolished in the late 1990s I believe.
     Arnold Smith said his grandmother May (MacLeod) Smith, of Pleasant Valley, said their family took wool here to be carded.
     The following comes from the website

  1. My grandfather and father ran the mill in the 1950's--1960's. I used to go with my father to the mill for lumber and to help grandfather. I was told to stay away from the mill as it was a dangerous place for a little girl. Our grandparents house was just up above the pond from the mill. Grandfather was Everett Paynter and father was Ivan Paynter. Mavis Paynter
