Full Description

Watermill, C18, probably earlier. Substantial stone building with pantiled roof, now used and lived in as a farmhouse. The present occupants had the machinery removed in 1928. The wheel was where the kitchen is now situated, about centre of house. OS map, published 1947, shows stretch of water behind house but this is now dry. Water would be from Owlands Wood Dyke which flows by the house and is a tributary of the Ryton. Mill stones went to Smiths (Millers) of Worksop. The rest of the machinery was disposed of, presumably as scrap. Metal weighed 11.5 tons. (02/08/1962). (1)
Named 'Mill'. (2)
Cornmill erected in 1800 by Sir TW White's father. It was disused in 1887 when it is so marked on the OS map. (3)
