Notes about this historic site

Probable mill leat.

1 An artificial watercourse extends SW from SP21046460 and ends in what was apparently a pool situated at SP20906442.
2 The remains of the mill race for WA 946 runs from the garden of the mill to SP21076464 where it turns in an ESE direction to meet the stream at SP 21126460. The course is marked by two banks, which in places have been broken recently, in an attempt to reduce winter flooding in the mill grounds. The height of the surviving stretches of bank range from under 1m-2m. No trace of a mill pool was found.
3 Polygon area updated based upon NGRs given in 2.
