Glen Wyllin Mill

Period: Modern

NGR Easting: 231890

NGR Northing: 489745

Description: Modern mill leat.

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

The mill stands just a few metres to the south of the river, which has an extensive catchment derived from the hills inland of Kirk Michael.

A long mill leat provides the watersupply. It is cut into the south side of the winding, narrow valley and extends some 500m upstream, where the inlet (to which the grid reference relates) was controlled by a sluice and weir. The overall fall on the leat is between 10-12m.

The leat is traceable throughout its length and still carries a flow of water.
