Here, just before the river Loose runs into the Medway, was once an ancient fulling mill, but the site has been used at various different times subsequently for producing flour, gunpowder, oil and paper. It seems to have ceased work early in the 20th century, and the site was eventually cleared for housing, leaving no trace of the mill.
