Dear Mr Wilson

Thank you for your cheque for sponsorship of a water wheel bucket. We will be delighted to inscribe the bucket FAC 148 in accordance with your wishes.

This very generous measure of support for our major restoration project is much appreciated by the Museum Trustees.

I hope that you will come and visit us in the near future to see the progress made so far; we will of course, be in touch with you when the bucket has been inscribed, so that you can see your bucket on the wheel.

Yours sincerely

David Sekers


Original letter from Quarry Bank Mill to Tony Wilson in acknowledgement of receipt of an unknown sum of sponsorship money for a water wheel bucket at the museum.

FAC 148 was chosen because it was 1 of 48 water wheel buckets.

The final inscribed bucket may be seen below.
