HER Number:MDV3475
Name:TIN MILL in the Parish of Walkhampton

Summary

Stamping mill, right bank of meavy, nosworthy. The nearby wood and plantation is full of tinners heaps of waste material. A wheelpit and the remains of an associated building is visible at the site. The course of the leat bringing water to the wheel can be traced for about 150m. A displaced mortar stone is lying at the same level as the terminating point of the leat but c.6m south of it. Plan given of the site. It is the probable site of a knacking (stamping) mill. The building may have been a protective covering for the machinery. The wheelpit could take a 12ft wheel of 2ft 6in breast, which is large. The mill is in close proximity to a mill on the other side of the river, at norsworthy farm. Date uncertain (greeves,1971).
