Notes about this historic site

1 A mill is recorded in 1086 and again in 1315. In 1844 a small needle-pointing mill was built onto the existing corn mill. Both sets of machinery were operated by a single waterwheel. The fine mill house which adjoins the corn mill was also erected at this time. Further information exists on ownership in the C19. The majority of the existing buildings date from 1810 and the existing machinery is also of this date. The wheel and main gearing are still in use.
2 A mill was recorded at Haselor in 1086 and valued at 6s 8d.
