Diverted footpath to Cornets End
Diverted footpath to Cornets End
The footpath past Mercote Mill Farm to Cornets End is diverted at its southern end from a point on Mercote Hall Lane near Park Farm. Here it is squeezed between a hedge and a bund on the eastern side of Coleman's sand and gravel quarry. Left of centre is a tower for (presumably) washing and grading the material. Its location appears to be SP23008127.
Judging by old maps, Mercote Hall was a country house at approximately SP224801; possibly an old manor house. It appears on OS maps of 1887 and 1904 but only one range of buildings is present from OS 1937 up to 1986. A local resident believed the site had been used to hold prisoners of war, but did not know which war. There is nothing on the site nor on the map now. The small parcel of woodland south-southwest of modern Mercote Mill Farm is the site of the grounds of Mercote Hall. It was sometime part of the Berkswell Hall estate.
