Byker, Ford Mill (Corn)
This Mill is shown on the 2nd edition Ordnance Survey plan, but is not shown on the 1st edition plan, indicating that it was built after 1858. The precise location is unclear from the 2nd edition mapping. However, Ward's trade directory for 1915-1916 still lists the Ford Mill as a flour mill run by John Hume and Son.
