Thirteen Clocks Game – Basement

Welcome to the dungeon, I mean the basement. In the early days of the mill it was powered by a steam engine which was located between the mill and the flour house. Water was brought from springs on the hill in pine pipes and the condensate ran to the river. You can still see the mounts for the main drive shaft here in the basement from which belts ran up to the floors above to power the machines. The strange rounded depressions in the floor were for the fly wheels. Here in the basement were the hammer mills which ground the grain. The one remaining is electric. The iron guards of the Duke had armor and spears and didn’t believe in the Golux. I’ve heard they were into leather.
