Notes about this historic site

1 This may have been one of the four mills included in the Deerhurst Estate in 1086. The mill is also recorded in 1545. Information on ownership exists for the 19th century. The mill was in use until 1943 and continued to be used occasionally until c1950. Early in 1972 the wheel was restarted and it is kept in working order by the present owner. The mill adjoins the stone mill-house, and is a three storey building. It is built mainly of stone, but in 1841 in the course of restoration some brickwork was introduced, including the wheelhouse.
