There was a mill at Chalfont St Peter at Domesday. Thomas Price was the miller in1689; Thomas Belch in 1699; John Haarding in 1798. It appears to have been used as a silk mill in 1822 and a fulling mill in 1842, but after a further period working as a corn mill, it fell into disuse and only its foundations were evident by the 1930s.
