Analytical text:

The mill was called this because in the vicinity there was a large walnut orchard filled with very old trees and also because it squeezed the kernels to produce "nut oil". Besides the three grinders for wheat, corn, and chestnuts there was a fourth grinder for the nuts called "gròla" which moved vertically to the wall pedestal. The oil from this procedure was suitable for frying and was used as an anti-freeze for bird lime in winter.
