Description: Modern millpond.

The Ordnance Survey 1:2500 First Edition mapping of 1867-8 depicts a watermill at this location, annotated 'T. Mill'.

The millpond was located just to the NW of the building, contained behind a dam on its SE side. The pond was fed by field drains running from the NW, extending c500m upslope to a spring.

The pond has been infilled, the field drain re-routed along the edge of the field, and the land returned to agriculture.
