I came across this sheepwash near the village of Thurloxton by chance while on a group walk a few weeks ago. At first glance it looked like the remains of a small mill but having stood and looked at it we decided that it was probably a sheepwash of some kind. I have checked on the Somerset Historic Environment Record website and it is listed there as a sheepwash, although there is no other information given about it, other than that it was recorded on a 1904 large scale Ordnance Survey map of the area. It is located on a public footpath at grid reference ST 276 301.
