Tyne and Wear HER(649): Ravensworth, mill - Details
Water Power Production Site
In Hatfield's Survey of the late 14th century, under Kibblesworth, it was recorded that Robert de Lomeley held a watermill, near Ravensworth, and paid an annual rent of 6d. A possible site is Cowclose Mill, north-east of Ravensworth Castle. The Trench (a burn) ran south-east to a mill pond just west of the mill, and then continued east to the Team. The pond, and an unnamed building, are still shown on the modern Ordnance Survey map.
