Staward Mill, Ballabrooie

Period: Modern

NGR Easting: 238565

NGR Northing: 494095

Description: Modern overflow race.

The Ordnance Survey 1:2500 First Edition mapping of 1869 shows a group of buildings together with the annotation, 'Corn Mill'.

The mill complex was of late 18th or early 19th century date. The buildings were ruinous by the 1960s and only part of the shell of the mill survives today.

The mill was protected by a complex overflow race governed by two penstocks, emptying back into the Sulby river 50m west of the building. Its course is traceable as a soil- and crop-mark, to which the grid reference relates.
