Overgrown remains of a 19th century water mill in Halsdon Nature Reserve, standing out into the river adjacent to the pathway, upstream of a small beach popular with visitors during the summer. The buildings has been weakened by the winter waters of 2002/3, and needs shoring up with emergency repairs, particularly the former water outflow which has been undercut and enlarged.
