Look inside: it's the Thoresway water wheel!
Photos TF1696 : Thoresway AA Sign and TF1696 : Old AA sign on Thoresway building show details of the AA sign on this wall. But did anyone think to open the door and look inside? It's the famous Thoresway water wheel. The little hole in the wall should give a clue: this is where the drive shaft came out. It then tracked down and under the road (where it is still, apart from a section removed to accommodate the gas main). It followed the wall upwards and into the opposite farm building, where it drove the farm machinery.
The water from a spring is fed into a reservoir behind and above the wheel, from which it runs into the stream under the wheel.
