ST5367 : Remains of a mill stream

Remains of a mill stream
Remains of a mill stream
Barrow Gurney has the Land Yeo running through it and has provided power for many mills over the years. A plaque records that here are the remains of a mill noted in the Domesday Book for Upper Barrow Mill that used to grind flour.

Barrow's more recent history is influenced by the construction of the large reservoirs up the road by Bristol Water Works in the late nineteenth century. Transportation of the water was by large pipes that ran through the village, almost in parallel with the Yeo; the pipe here was laid when the B.W.W. bought the Cold Bath stream in 1847 and crossed it at this point.
