Description: Late Medieval and Modern watermill and associated water management.

A mill at Kentraugh is recorded in the 1511 manorial roll. The Ordnance Survey First Edition 1:2500 map of 1868 shows a corn mill at this location. A millpond is also shown immediately to the east. The mill leat is shown extending for just over 500m upstream, whilst the tail race rejoins the Colby river 200m downstream.

The mill still stands and the mill equipment is preserved. The millpond is now filled in. The leat and tail race are still traceable throughout their length.
