Description: Modern mill leat.

The Ordnance Survey 1:2500 First Edition mapping of 1867-8 depicts a watermill at this location, annotated 'Woodside Mill (Paper)'.

A leat, controlled by a sluice at the point the water was drawn off from the River Glass, brought water 300m to the mill, terminating in a small millpond. Apart from the last few metres, the leat is still fully visible.

The grid reference refers to the midpoint of the leat, for reference purposes.
