Tunstall smock drainage pump was built on the south side of Tunstall Dyke, slightly to the east and on the opposite bank to Tunstall Dyke tower drainage pump.

Arthur C. Smith recorded many drainage pumps and he visited both Tunstall properties on 5th July 1988.
He noted that the octagonal horizontally boarded tower had been reduced to around 12 feet and was in very poor condition. The flat roof had gone and much of the boarding was missing.
At that time the track to the mill had all but disappeared, the nearby mill cottage was derelict and the whole site was overgrown.
