Tyne and Wear HER(625): Clockburn mill - Details
Water Power Production Site
As early as the year 1318 - at which time Clockburn was named Clockinthenns - there was a water-mill here, described as sitated on New Dene Burn. There is now only one house at Clockburn, which may occupy the site of the miller's dwelling of the 14th century. There was also a water corn mill at the end of the lane on the south side of the Derwent, where the miller's house was still standing in the late 19th century.
