Wall Mill (Greenhead; Haltwhistle)

Wall Mill lies in the corner of Markham Cottage Roman camp. The mill was built here long after the Romans left and is probably post-medieval in date. The remains survive as earthworks and include the mill pond, two leats, and the probable foundations of the miller's house and garden. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
