Full Description

A water mill depicted by the Linacre Brook on William Senior's map of 1630 is probably a wood mill that was converted into a water corn mill and that is mentioned in a lease of 1656. The present course of the Linacre Brook was presumably altered when the reservoirs were built in the 19th century or on the installation of the filter beds at the beginning of the 20th century.
