Larkfield Dam - Undated
 
Larkfield Dam was the water supply for the Larkfield Mill in the 1800s.  W B Cartwright & Co. Ltd, also used this dam as a water supply.  Excess water flowed out by a stream feeding the Billing Dam, which in turn fed the Booths's Mill on the Leeds Road.
The dam was utilised by Rawdon Yachting Club for model boats.  There was duck boards all around the sides of the dam for the model yachting enthusiasts.
 
In the background can be seen Bento Park School and to the right Green Lane Mill.
