Tyne and Wear HER(1403): Jesmond, medieval water mill - Details
Jesmond, medieval water mill
Water Power Production Site
In 1272 the widow and heirs of Adam of Jesmond recovered from his two illegitimate sons the water mills at Heaton and Jesmond. It must be assumed that the Heaton mill was using the Ouse Burn for a water supply, and that it would be situated on the east bank, the burn being the boundary between Heaton and Jesmond. It is likely that Jesmond mill would have been powered by water drawn from the Ouse Burn, and since this burn was the boundary between Jesmond and Heaton, this mill would have been on the west bank. A more precise location cannot be given at present.
