I READ with much interest the plans for the old water mill, in particular, the comments by Cllr Richard Harris who said during the development control sub- committee that the water source that powered the mill no longer exists.

These were left open some 20 years ago allowing the water to fork left into the river, this could be rectified by closing the gate and once again down towards the mill.
