Glen Maye Mill

Period: Modern

NGR Easting: 223767

NGR Northing: 479490

Description: Modern mill leat.

The Ordnance Survey 1:2500 First Edition mapping of 1868-9 shows a building together with the annotation, 'Corn Mill'.

The mill was supplied by two leats. The more southerly captured the entire flow of the stream descending from the direction of 'The Sound', the confluence of two narrow valleys draining the north side of Dalby Mountain. The lower 240m of this stream was canalised and channelled along the roadside to a point immedately above the roadbridge, where it joined the other leat. The grid reference relates to the point at which the stream becomes canalised.

The leat still carries water until diverted along a line approximately similar to the former overflow race.
