The Millrace is a historic and integral part of the old Belan House Estate. It streches over 1 km from the Cornmills to a stream running in to the River Greese. It dates back at least 300 years and for most of its lenght it is more than 4 metres below ground level. It has extensive stome walls on either side with its banks supporting many mature Beech and Oak trees.
The following photos detail the Millrace before, during and after extensive cleaning work that was carried out to prepare it for restoration work which is currently ongoing.
