Three Cottages at Brent Mill SX6986 5965
These cottages appear to have been demolished to make way for a more recent terrace of cottages (stone built and slated wit brick openings) immediately north of 'Clarence House', once the Globe Inn. They are shown on the Tithe Map of 1843 and recorded as cottages (1599, 1601, 1603) and 'Watering Place' (1605).
The Watering Place remains as a wide alley leading down to the left bank of the leat supplying Manor Mills. It is immediately west of the present row of cottages. The leat bank is here reinforced with stone and describes a sharp bend, either due to the lie of the land or to bring it closer to the alley.
