Ifield Watermill and Pond


Title: Ifield Watermill and Pond
Description: Built in 1810 and constructed of brick and timber, the watermill stands on the site of an older mill that dates from the seventeenth century. Located in a picturesque setting, the waterwheel has been restored and now moves freely. The millpond is one of the most important wetland sites in Crawley and supports many bird species such as moorhen, reed bunting and wagtail, plus butterflies, newts, toads, dragon flies and damselflies. Split in two by the railway, the millpond also supports an abundance of wild plants such as yellow iris and bulrush.
