Water Power Production Site
In 1528 a water mill called Laman mill, in the manor of Newburn, was let to Leonard Musgrave for 41 years at 20 p.a. and 6s 8d for the mill. It appears again as Laymedon mill, paying 6s 8d, in the 1592 survey. Its location is not known, nor whether it could have been one of the anonymous water mills and corn mills mentioned in 1250, 1367, 1499/ 1500. In 1592 there were 2 corn mills in addition to Laymedon.
