Burtreeford Mill, Cowshill


Burtreeford Mill at Cowshill is a large 3 story building, now converted for residential use. Its water wheel was driven by water from both Killhope Burn and Sedling Burn. The mill was built in the early 19th century at a time when Butree Ford was considered a separate village to Coshill. The mill was in use up to 1939[1], it was converted for residential use in 1994.[2]

Burtree Ford is a village, about three miles west-north-west of St. John Chapel, and contains an extensive corn mill.
From: History, Topography, and Directory of the County Palatine of Durham, W Whellan, 1856.
