Jesmond Dene, Sluice gate behind Millfield House
Water Supply and Drainage
Water Regulation Installation
Sluice gate and decorative stone walls to north of Millfield House. This was the site of the mill pond associated with Busy Cottage Corn Mill (HER 4137). The sluice gate allows the mill race to run under Millfield House through a well-constructed stone tunnel. Presumably contemporary with the mill (1855).
