Stone Troughs & Cider Mills - SOLD 

Stone troughs vary widely in both shape and scale and, because of the cost and difficulty involved in transporting them, they were originally carved mainly from local stones. This means that the diversity of original antique stone troughs is huge, which adds to their charm for those of us smitten by an interest in our rural heritage. Cider mills are a speciality of the South West Midlands, which we also have in stock from time to time.
