Medieval Mill Site

mill_site.jpg (74228 bytes)
Believed to be the location of a medieval mill site.  No trace of the mill remains, but it was situated on a springline and the stream which may have been used to power it still flows into a steep sided depression.  The mill was probably small enough to be operated by one person and would have been used to grind corn into flour for the inhabitants of the nearby hamlet. There is evidence that at one time two small leats served the mill.
