Notes about this historic site

1 A mill existed in 1316.
2 The mill is marked on Beighton’s map of 1725, but nothing else is known of its history until the 19th century. Information on ownership exists for the second half of the 19th century. The mill is shown as working on the 1886 OS 1:10560 map, but had become disused by 1900 and was demolished shortly afterwards. The watercourses of the mill can be followed and some brickwork remains on the site.
