Tyne and Wear HER(3421): Blaydon Burn, High Mill/Wintrip's Mill - Details
Blaydon Burn, High Mill/Wintrip's Mill
High Mill (Corn) by Blaydon Burn was also known as Wintrip's Flour Mill. In 1736 the antiquarian Bourne noted the following:"After passing a small pit… the remains of Wintrip's Flour Mill are on the left of the waggonway. The mill race is now filled up and the arms of the water wheel are at rest. The miller's house is still standing". It is not clear whether the mill was subsequently rebuilt, but it was disused by 1896 and the associated dam had disappeared.
