This ancient mill, on the River Misbourne, is constructed of red brick and tile, with some half-timbering. There is an early reference to Bury Mill from 1504, although building changes have taken place subsequently. Apart from a brief period in the 1820s when it was a silk mill, the mill was always operated as a corn mill. By the 1930s it was run as a road house.
