Notes about this historic site

2 This may be the site of the mill in Street Ashton, mentioned in 1304. In 1341 Pailton Mill was granted to Sir John Revel. Details of ownership exist for the 19th century. The mill probably closed c1914. The main mill building was demolished many years ago, and only some outbuildings remain. The wheelpit can still be seen, and the overgrown foundations of the mill. The outline of the mill pond and the tail race are still visible.
3 Allowing for a bit more overgrowth and general degradation, this report is true of the mill’s present state.
