This Foldout looks at the subject of waterwheels.
Several types of waterwheel were in use to drive local mills
Where the landscape did not provide a suitable supply of water, it was often necessary to construct a leet so that the water hit the breastshot and overshot wheels at the correct height.
Waterwheels were also used to drive fulling stocks.
