Notes about this historic site

1 A stone path led down from the house to the lower end of the pool where the mill stood. An ice-house (PRN 2281) now occupies the site. The water from the moat descended into two stew ponds and then to the mill pool.
2 This former mill pond is now called Long Pond, but the adjacent spinney is still called Millpond Spinney.
