Site of Needle Mill 300m W of Oversley Mill
The possible site of a needle mill, a watermill which was in use for the manufacture of needles during the Imperial period. It was situated 300m west of Oversley Mill.
1 In 1804 it was proposed to build a needle mill at the quarry at Arrow, sufficient for four pointing and six scouring benches. The water power was to be derived from a new cut to convey the water out of Spittle Brook. This is thought to have been the mill known as Rock Mill which was replaced by a pumping station later in the 19th century (PRN 5207).
