Site of drainage mill. Marked on (S1).
E. Rose (NAU), 19 December 1979.
Grid reference made more accurate from (S2).
(S1) is the only map to mark this as a drainage mill. This is probably an error as all other information indicates that this was a corn mill. The Gillingham tithe map (S3) depicts a post mill on the site however it had disappeared by the late 19th century (S4).
