The high level leat which would have served an overshot or backshot waterwheel is visible as a bank running along the eastern edge of the garden of 'frogmill'. A sale notice of 1814 suggests the mill was already out of use as 'frog mills' was described as a house, three orchards and a garden (bodman).
