Parrett Works near Martock
The plaque on the building reads "Historic Martock. Parrett Works 19th C. Built in 1854 on the site of old Cary's Mill, mentioned in the Doomsday [sic] Book, this was originally a flour mill, then a flax mill and canvas and rope makers, later manufacturing engineering products. More than 300 persons were employed here at its prime. Martock Parish Council"
Picture taken from Carey's Mill Bridge (spelling as on OS map) showing mill leat rejoining the main stream of the River Parrett having run underground for perhaps 200 metres. From the noise coming from the tunnel (at 8.51 pm) some power may still be taken from the stream.
