Video of the electricity generators at Longfords Mill


Back in the early 90s I discovered a great collection of electricity generators at Longfords Mill. The mill is located between Nailsworth and Avening.

I made a video of them on a camcorder before they vanished as the building had just started to be converted into flats and housing and I wasn’t sure what might happen to them.

They’re probably still there as there was talk of making the room open to the public as the collection was interesting.

The room was very dark and Hi8 camcorders aren’t exactly cutting edge in these days of high resolution but it’s good enough to put on the Stroudie Central YouTube channel. The video can be viewed below.
