Notes about this historic site

1 A watermill (PRN 1443) was replaced by a pumping station later in the 19th century. This contained two pumps operated by a waterwheel, lifting water from wells on the site to Ragley Hall. The building has been demolished and the wells capped, but the high breast-shot or pitchback waterwheel survives. The leat from the nearby stream is now dry.
