Ballacain Mill

Period: Modern

NGR Easting: 234030

NGR Northing: 494649

Description: Modern mill tail race.

The Ordnance Survey 1:2500 First Edition mapping of 1869 shows a building together with the annotation 'T Mill', denoting a threshing mill. The mill is associated with the small farmstead of Ballacain.

Waste water from the threshing mill was led along a 90m tail race and returned to the Ballaugh river some distance downstream. The grid reference relates to a point halfway along its course for indicative purposes.

The site of the mill is now occupied by a range of more recent agricultural buildings, and the leats and millpond have been infilled. Parts of the tail race are however still evident.
