A quadrant of a water wheel. A replica of part of the 1827 Thomas Hewes wheel used in an Arkwright Textile Mill at Lumford near Bakewell. The mill was later used to make batteries, and the wheel drove a battery charging generator. The wheel was dismantled in 1955 but four small parts were saved and are displayed here.
