TOO much of our national heritage has been converted to housing for too long and it's time that places such as Tilty watermill got the protection they deserve.

Many of our old mills are too far gone to be able to do anything but a change of use to residential dwelling, but Tilty mill is in a different position with much of it's machinery still there and needs little restoration compared to some to make it a valuable local historical and educational asset.

I'm sure there must be plenty of other places that could be used instead of converting this 800-year-old building of historical interest into just another home or second home.
