Wiveliscombe: Tuck Mill Copse
Wiveliscombe: Tuck Mill Copse
The little building half hidden in the trees is on the site of Tuck Mill probably the cottage associated with it. There is a datestone of 1675 set into the fabric. 'Tuck' or 'tucking' mill is the west-country equivalent of a 'fulling' mill and this was one of a number of sites in Wiveliscombe parish where cloth was fulled in the 17th and 18th centuries. The fulling stocks in the mill would have been powered by a waterwheel fed from a leat carrying water from a weir on the river Tone; a leat also ran past here to serve Jews Mill further downstream
