Another view of the Mill

The Toulon Mill dates from 1892  The ball mill was used to process tungston and other metals until it ceased operation in the 1930s.  As we walked through the mill buildings we noticed the warped floorboards and giant furnaces.  Hundreds of pigeons have taken up residence in the various parts of the mill.  The Toulon Mill is located on private property and requires permission to enter.
