NY 87 SE
(north side, off)
9/113 Remains of piers and
15/4/69 water channel, north of Nunwick
Mill (formerly listed as Stone
Piers with water trough at
Nunwick Mill)

Remains of piers and water channel. Early Cl9. Squared rubble piers; wooden
water channel. The piers, at 3.0 to 4.0-metre intervals, supported a water
channel and formed a c.100-metre long aqueduct running north to supply Nunwick
Mill. 11 rectangular-plan piers remain and they gradually increase in height
(to counter the sloping site) from 1.0 to 2.5 metres as they near the mill.
The water channel has collapsed and disappeared except for a short section near
the mill. Included for group value.
