When the property was purchased in 2009 part of the bundle of documentation that was received was the original 1976 planning consent for conversion from industrial to residential and the installation of hydro electricity production equipment. At that time, 1976, the plan was to use the water wheel to generate power. The water wheel is approximately 3 meters wide by 4 meters high and would produce about 38 Horse power; Which for a water wheel is very powerful.
