At Domesday six mills were recorded in High Wycombe. In later times, further mill sites were developed. Overall, eleven mill sites are known, ten mills surviving into the 20th century or late nineteenth century. Records show that John Lane had Lanes’s Mill in 1792, and in 1830 Joseph Lane had Ash Mill. The Lane family finally gave up paper-making at the mill in 1847. By the 1930s only the foundations remained.
