Archaeology Notes

NS55NE 34 597 562

The site of Peel Mill (18th century), 400m ENE of the tower-house of Peel, was later a farm, and is now a residence. The remains of a weir at NS 598 561 probably indicates a churn mill at the farm, but the site of the mill is a terrace in the slope NE of the cottage, with a second terrace W, and required water at a higher level. This appears to have been served by a cutting through the spur at NS 599 562, recently utilised by a sewer, which left a residual mound, like a motte, on the S. Traces of a channel lead back to Stepends Bridge.

T C Welsh 1982.
