HISTORIC NOTES

The millpond serves an historic Grade II listed working watermill - Ford End Watermill. It is believed that the millpond was originally a moat surrounding a 13th century farmhouse which was replaced early in the 19th century by the present farmhouse, built for the Bridgewater Estate (Ashridge). The Jellis family tenanted the farm from 1890 and in 1924 bought the property from the Bridgewater Estate. Five generations of the Jellis family have farmed the property and this is the first time the house has been made available for sale since 1924.
