Thomas Telford's Watercourse Mill Lade is the one and only water scheme he actually designed which is still in its original state in the whole of Britain and is an important cultural part of the history of the creation of Pulteneytown as a settlement for the Herring Fishing in the 1800s. The watercourse was constructed in 1807 and completed in 1809 and supplied fresh running water for the town up until recent years. The Distillery now uses the water for the production of Old Pulteney whisky.
