A corn and cotton mill here was taken over by the Wood family in the mid 19th century. Cotton spinning later ceased, but flour production continued under F T Wood and Sons. The firm later became part of Spillers, and the mill now belongs to Kerry Ingredients. The mill was powered by waterwheel until 1886 and by water turbine from 1886 to 1970
