Old Mill and tidal mill pond, Antony Passage
Old Mill and tidal mill pond, Antony Passage
The Old Mill is the stone house down by the water, (note the mill stones set in the drive), and the house nearest the viewpoint was the Mill Keeper's house. As the tide goes out and comes in the water rushes through the narrow channel between the old mill and the stone boundary wall an early example of harnessing the tides to provide power.
Prior to 1908 the view here would have been dominated by one of the 42 wooden viaducts designed by Brunel to carry the London to Penzance railway across creeks, rivers and the undulating Cornish countryside. The structure was replaced by SX4157 : Forder viaduct in 1908.
