13th century fulling mill found in Barrowburn

A team of archaeologists from Coquetdale Community Archaeology has discovered the remains of a 13th century cloth mill on the River Coquet near Barrowburn, England. Experts believe that the mill was built by monks from the Newminster Abbey in Morpeth.

The team worked largely underwater during the excavation which yielded masonry, timbers and a "carefully crafted wheel pit." The team also discovered wooden structures up river which they believe are the remains of sluices which fed the mill.
