Gleaston Watermill by Jim Woodward-NuttThe historic corn water mill at Gleaston was built in the 14th century and restored in 1774. The present mill machinery dates from that time and is in working order. The restored machinery and 18 foot in diameter timbered waterwheel with its wooden gears operates on most days. The 11th century watercourse was man-made. Remains of prehistoric man were found close by.
