The blurry photo on the right is of the brass plaque on the water wheel bucket donated by 'FAC 148' or Factory Communications. This is one of 48 (hence the number) buckets sponsored by companies aiding the restoration of Quarry Bank Mill. The wheel is fully-working and powers machinery inside the mill. A sign inside indicates all the sponsors of the restoration including "Factory Communication Ltd." (sic).
