Tyne and Wear HER(5683): Jesmond Dene, Busy Cottage Mill, mill pond - Details
Jesmond Dene, Busy Cottage Mill, mill pond
Water Supply and Drainage
Mill pond to north of Busy Cottage Corn Mill (HER 4137). Still visible as a slight earthwork. Must have been used as a rubbish tip when it went out of use, as bottles have been found in the fill, along with clinker presumably from the ironworks (HER 5680).
