A retired carpenter is still putting his woodworking skills to good use.

Stan Moulding, 80, of North Green, Coates, has spent the last 18 months creating an exquisite drainage mill.

His mill pays homage to the picturesque mills which used to be scattered across the Fens.

Mr Moulding said: “It took me quite some time. I just kept going down to the shed and doing bits and pieces.

“I’m always making different things. Whatever takes my fancy.”
