This ruined building is shown on the maps as a disused mill, and is listed as "Canonsleigh Priory Mill", an understandable assumption as a stream passes directly underneath. There now seems to be a consensus of opinion that it was the latrine block for the Augustinian Abbey of Canonsleigh LinkExternal link . It is also described as a privy house at LinkExternal link .

On the left is Canonsleigh House. View from Burlescombe Footpath 26.
