The old Water Mill, in Jesmond Dene is situated in the east end of Newcastle upon Tyne, England.
One of many mills which bordered a watercourse known as the Ouse Burn, in years past.
Dating back to the 13th Century, the mill was occupied for three or four generations by the Freeman family who used it as a flour mill.
Ownership then passed to a man called Pigg who ground spoiled grain into pollards, a kind of feed for pigs.
The park was first laid out by William George Armstrong and his wife, of Jesmond Dene House, during the 1860s.
The design is intended to reflect a rural setting, with woodland, crags, waterfalls and pools.
It is now owned by Newcastle City Council.
