Archaeological excavation of Barrowburn Fulling Mill

  • Description

    "An excavation of the remains of a C13th fulling mill by members of the Coquetdale Community Archaeology Group in July 2011. The main site shown here along the edge of the River Coquet, just upstream from the remaining piers of a old footbridge, consists of the remains of a water channel and water wheel pit along with a horizontal wooden structure on the river bed. Finds of a cut silver halfpenny and shards of medieval pottery confirmed the radiocarbon dates already obtained." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2011.
