Notes about this historic site

1 Included in SAM 21571. One of two ponds along the stream to the N of the conventual buildings. This was the pond which would have ensured a constant supply of water to the E pond (see WA 3652). All that remains is the 1.5m high dam which is still visible in earthwork form.
