NH 735 497 The site of the tide mill of Petty was surveyed as part of a wider study into the history of Petty Church and its environs. The site is previously recorded in the NMRS (NH 74 NW 95) as a single building. The site is a rectangular building with sluice and an associated dyke and possibly two other structures. A documentary study revealed a date of use, both as a mill and a dwelling, from late 17th to mid-19th century. <1>
