Full Description

The leat is shown on the Tithe Map for Brompton Regis. [1] The leat is also depicted and labelled on the 1st and 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey maps. [2,3] Leat, now overgrown, from Pulham River at SS 9547 3149 and marked "old mill leat" on Ordnance Survey map. [4] A number of leats, possibly relating to the mill are visible on aerial photographs. [5,6] A mill leat is shown on the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map from SS 95476 31387 to the west side of Pulhams Mill, suggesting that the wheel was on this side. The mill race from the mill to the river is not shown so it may have been in a culvert by this time [2]. The mill leat and mill race are shown on the Tithe Map [1] with the position of the wheel apparently on the rear (north side) of the mill, with the mill race then continuing into the river to the west of the mill [7] . The leat was mapped on the GIS using the historic mapping available. [1-3,8]
