SW8662 : Colan: Melancoose Mill

taken 23 years ago, near to Colan, Cornwall, Great Britain

Colan: Melancoose Mill
Colan: Melancoose Mill
Now a private house. Hard by the lane from Colan to Trebarber. By 1972 the mill appeared to be derelict*, but has since been converted and the waterwheel restored, although it will never fully operate again since the construction of Porth Reservoir upstream has deprived it of its leat.
* See photograph in D E Benney’s ‘An Introduction to Cornish Water-Mills’, Truro, 1972
