Full description

Site of water mill.
Marked on (S1) on the pre canal stream.
The weir marked on 6 inch Ordnance Survey map at this point by a lock on the canal is probably just an overflow from Dilham Lakes, and it is unlikely that the mill survived canalisation, all milling being transferred to NHER 15438.
E. Rose (NAU) 7 November 1979.

No trace remains. For the lock here see NHER 13534.
E. Rose (NAU) 5 February 1981.
