Notes about this historic site

2 The mill is first recorded in 1550 and information on ownership exists for the 18th century and 19th century. The last known miller was recorded in 1896. The mill ceased working many years ago and has been converted into a dwelling. It is a three storey brick building, and has an external waterwheel enclosed in a brick wheelhouse, which is now used as a garage. It is possible to trace the line of the leat and the outline of the pool behind the buildings.
