Tyne and Wear HER(4680): Ouseburn, Corn Mill - Details
Ouseburn, Corn Mill
A corn mill is shown on Hutton's map of 1770. It was built before the surviving river walls, but it is likely that the mill would have had a small river wall to allow the loading of cargo by boat. An area of random stonework survives at the base of the existing river wall on the site of the corn mill. This stonework may have been linked to the mill and so could pre-date the rest of the river wall. The corn mill is shown on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey plan of the area.
