Water wheel

Water wheel - Our Travels
Near the castle is currently a restaurant, but about 350 years ago this water wheel was built near to the castle wall. Its purpose was to generate an energy source to grind grains for flour for the lord of the castle. It was located within the walls of the castle. It was protected from invaders so their food supply would not be cut-off. I don't think it is in use to today, but its purpose is ornamental and a reminder of the past.
