Description: Modern watermill and associated water management.

The Ordnance Survey 1:2500 First Edition mapping of 1869 shows a building at the grid reference provided, together with the annotation, 'Corn Mill'.

The building is a substantial structure, and still survives in use as a distillery.

Waterpower was provided by a large millpond, now filled in, which extended to a little over an acre in area. This was primarily was fed from a weir and sluice taking water directly from the adjacent Sulby river, but the supply was significantly augmented from a channel drawn off the tail race of Staward mill.

A long 380m tail race returned water to the river just above Sulby Bridge.
