Dam 200m E of Goodrest Farm
The remains of a dam associated with a probable mill pond. The dam and the pond survive as earthworks. They date to the Medieval/Post Medieval period and are situated 350m south west of Fox Covert, Leek Wootton.
1 A probable mill-bay. Up to 2.3m high on both sides with roughly squared blocks visible where the dam has been breached.
2 Fishpond marked on a map of 1845.
3 The great pool was periodically scoured and the pool head was repaired in 1702.
4 There are man-made banks surrounding the field which contains the dam. These may actually be part of a park pale.
