4x5 for 365 project (77/365)

The Bromley Mill, located on the Cuttalossa Creek in Solebury Township, Bucks County Pennsylvania, not far from New Hope. The Mill has been known as Bromley Lowe’s Hobby Mill or simply Bromley’s Mill. It stands across the street from the Cuttalossa Inn. The name Cuttalossa comes from the name of an Indian village which existed in the area meaning "the place of the middle spring." The original mill dates back to 1752 and was in use until 1929. On the grounds of the mill, mini Baby Doll Sheep are raised alongside Chickens and Geese. You can purchase a handful of feed from a machine in front of the Inn and feed the animals. It's a very quiet and idyllic setting, great for photography.
