The Grinding Hull.


It was in the Grinding Hull that edge tools were sharpened to a fine cutting edge.
Grinding was a very dangerous occupation and at least one fatal accident is known to have
occurred at the hamlet in 1912 when a grindstone 'burst' killing the grinder, and most
grinders suffered from silicosis or 'grinders disease' through inhaling the stone dust.
