Additional description
The mechanism of the mill in Nizhnyaya Sinyachikha is considered active in most references. Actually, it is quite hard to believe, because it is extremely difficult to start a mill after such a long period of not being used. However, all gears inside are apparently in place. The list shows the parts that are clearly visible in the photos. We ourselves have not been to Lower Sinyachikha yet.

There is an exposition of the mill business inside the mill.
