Saturday 24 July Gondang Baru mill and Prambanan

This mill has only one diesel working in the yard (and a few tractors).

However, the mill plant includes a great selection of working antique machinery. The oldest mill engine was built in France in 1884.

There is also a short hand-worked 400mm gauge tramway used as part of the process to convert limestone to lime for use in the sugar mill. The skips are hauled to the top of the processing plant on a hoist.

Following the visit, we took time to call in at the World Heritage Hindu temple complex at Prambanan.
