A long disused mill and abandoned farm I looked around recently.

Sorry about the incorrect posting, still getting the hang of a very interesting web site, a REAL find on what is a mostly boring web these days!:)

I thought I'd add a few of my pics taken today. A gorgeous day for visiting the woods but spoilt by hundreds of horseflies.

The spillway to the wheel

Nestling in the undergrowth is part of the control gear for the sluice which used to allow water down to the wheel

The dam is about 15 or so feet high although only the top couple of feet are used for the overshot wheel. Perhaps there was an undershot wheel here first? Anyway you'd want to patch up the dam before you used it nowadays.

The map shows another mill pond slightly to the north east but all that remains now is the remnants of a wall and a socking great bank which has been gut through.

Great to see some more pics, Crickley. Fab site for a ramble and explore...shame about the horseflies, though! The waterwheel really is lovely. :)
