Water Power on the Porter

There was a great deal of small scale industry which used the power of the Porter.

John Gath from our neighbouring River Sheaf Website has produced a great sub section that details all of the 20 Mills and Ponds that operated in the Porter Valley.

The map here, taken from the River Sheaf Site shows their locations, and Eleven of them are within the FoPV area. We are grateful to 'River Sheaf' who have kindly allowed us to link to their site.
