Fishpond 100m SE of Court Farm House

Description of this historic site

A dam for a millpool or fishpond, which survives as an earthwork, and dates to the Medieval period. It is situated 300m north east of Castle Hill, Fulbrook.

Notes about this historic site

1 A path turns sharply back to the left from the road. This leads down to what has been a dam across the stream, presumably for a pool. The path therefore may have led to the mill on this dam.
2 A mill dam was located and surveyed.
3 A large dam has been built across the site of what was obviously a pond at one time. The roadway in reference 1 is also visible.
4 The dam is still in good condition. It may be a dam for a fishpond rather than a mill.
