Tumtingle The houses I think he's talking about just after the bridge and pen as you turn into the mill fields on the left(I don't remember them but you could see something had been there) the Reservoir would be the Dam across on the left, the brook at that point would have been made from the over flow and the trap door to feed the water wheel from the Dam, there wouldn't have been a brook from the Dell to the water outlet to the mill until the late 50s,
the big house at the bottom of hill going to Bryn on the right corner would be Dot Cromptons

uncle Joe your to young to remember the the Dam with water in but this is a photo of it
