Outlet weir to Newmillerdam lake, off Barnsley Road, Crigglestone
Chevet corn mill was moved to a site to the north of Barnsley Road from one upstream of the boathouse by Francis Nevile of Chevet Hall in 1633. It would seem likely that this was to make a private hunting park in what is now Newmillerdam Country Park. The present dam, which carries the A61 Barnsley Road, might have been constructed in conjunction with the 19C turnpike road. Certainly the outlet weir and the bridge look to be 19C rather than 17C work.
