Notes: Eric Hemery (p.529) tells the tale; “On the opposite verge, a short way below, are a few scattered rocks also connected with the long saga of the mill; known as ‘Flour Rocks’, they mark the spot where once a pack-horse returning southward with two sacks of flour lost half of his load, with the result that the rocks received the cascade of flour and retained a pale hue for some weeks to come – long remembered in Sherwell.”
