HER Number:MDV62675
Name:Millpond to west of Middlehill, Tedburn St Mary


Millpond Copse suggests the site of a former millpond. The watermill it served could have been located close to the eastern end of the copse, where the stream turns sharply to flow into the stream to the south. Alternatively, this could have been a spillway and the mill situated in Water Orchard where earthworks are also visible on LiDAR.
