Mill Stones

This pair of mill stones sit at the entrance to Preuilly's Museum, housed in the Poterne of the château, and well worth a visit. There is an excellent collection of Tourangelle lace bonnets and the tools with which they were made. Other metiers are also well represented and there are many fascinating objects associated with skills which now have all but died out.
