Bardsey Mill Pond Dam

Description:-
Remains of substantial mill pond dam, partially damaged by breach, but large sections of stone work and remains of sluices still present.

History:-
A dam existed here in 1847. It was used to regulate the flow of Bardsey Beck which fed the corn watermill at Bardsey (WYK00195). By 1891 it seems to have been considerably improved, possibly in response to the construction of the adjacent Leeds and Wetherby railway in the 1870's.
