This was a large paper mill of ancient foundation, powered by a powerful overshot waterwheel. Following a major fire in 1894 the premises were completely rebuilt, and steam power superseded the waterwheel. The buildings were demolished, the stream hidden in a culvert, and new houses built on the site in the 1980s.
