Beside the path which led to pictures in the last couple of posts are the remains of a goit. A goit is a channel or drain that took water to a mill, (goit is a term that seems to be have used ‘up North’ which corresponds to a term ‘leat’ that is used ‘down South’. Nowadays, at the point shown above, the water is diverted off to a series of fish feeding tanks of a small fish farm.
This series of images shows the state of the old goit through the passage of time and the lack of water.
At the foot of what seems to be the outfall from the mill (the building of which is no longer in evidence) is this stone with the date 1790. I’ve had a quick look on the web but so far I have found nothing about the mill itself.
