Prints are mounted using Daler Mountboard with a protective backing of greyboard. The 3 colours shown above are fairly neutral to match most decors, but I do have other colours available. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Dale Mill stands by the River Thurso just north of Westerdale Bridge and just south of Dale House, which dates from around 1740. An earlier big house probably stood on the same site, but people have lived here for millenia. The ruins of eight iron-age brochs roughen the smooth local landscape, and the broch-like tower of a beehive dovecote in a walled garden alongside the river dates from the 17th century. In a county strewn with ancient remains, the Mill is a picturesque but outwardly unremarkable building. Although it was originally built to grind grain, however, a water-powered generator was installed in 1919 to provide electric power for Dale House. This pollution-free idea was way ahead of its time, and the house storage radiators are still powered by that generator today, unlikely as it may seem from the Mill’s rustic exterior. It is so easy to mis-judge from outward appearance.
