This mill is mentioned by Worth (Ref: Worth’s DARTMOOR – page 300) as Blacklane Brook (A). He states it measures 8ft (2.4m) x 17ft (5.2m). He cites that Crossing states there was a watercourse leading to it and also identified with the Wallack Mill mentioned in 1538 as being let to Richard Coole and Thomas Hele (both Cornwood men). He further states that it is small for a Blowing House and that he could not trace a leat or watercourse.” Steve Grigg, Dartmoor Explorations.
