HER Number:MDV49692
Name:Mill Pond at Coldharbour Mill

Summary

The millpond depicted on the historic mapping appears to have been partially silted up on aerial photographs taken in the 1940s. However the bank on its southern side is clearly visible as a substantial earthwork and may be contemporary with the 18th century Coldharbour Mill. The bank remains visible on images derived from lidar data captured in 2005.

The millpond depicted on the historic mapping appears to have been partially silted up on aerial photographs taken in the 1940s. However the bank on its southern side is clearly visible as a substantial earthwork up to 7 metres in width. It is depicted as a separate land parcel on the Tithe Map and may be contemporary with the 18th century Coldharbour Mill. The bank remains visible on images derived from lidar data captured in 2005.
