A Brief History
We thought it well worth adding a few notes about this lovely property's heritage. When working it milled corn through 3 pairs of stones driven by an "Overshot" wheel. Below is an extract from a hand tinted 1888 ordinance survey map showing the mill and the impressive route of the original mill leat. Included in the sale are a couple of French "Buhr" style milling stones.
