Mills on the River Monnow: their weirs, leats and launders

From a talk given to GVSG by Ken Palmer on 23 October 2014

The Talk examined the infrastructure of just four of the watermills on the river Monnow, three of which are close to the Monnow itself whilst the fourth is in the valley of the Tresenny Brook, a small tributary of the Monnow which lies south west of Grosmont.  One of the mills in the Monnow valley, namely that at Llangua, is no longer extant but was the subject of an archaeological excavation during the summers of 2003 and 2004.  These four mills were chosen to illustrate a variety of the infrastructure and water-feed arrangements as described in the full article.
Ken Palmer subsequently led a follow-up walk on 9 November 2014 with visits to Grosmont Mill, Scudamore’s Mill at Grosmont and the mill at Hoaldalbert.
