Mill on the Fleet, Gatehouse of Fleet 8th August 2009

A bit of a cloudy grey day so decided to go to Gatehouse of Fleet as we knew we could retreat to the Mill on the Fleet if it rained. Wicker art on the wall outside the Mill. A sheep I think!

The Mill on the Fleet used to be a visitor attraction with tableaus, however it now appears to be more of an Exhibition Centre with free entry. Good secondhand bookshop, cafe and camera you can operate to view the river. Entry is free with a donation box.

We had a walk through the woods towards Cally and came across a game of cricket which took our attention for a while.
Unfortunately our walk was cut short when it started to rain!
