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. There are early records of New Mill from 1792 and by 1822 it was referred to as Bryant’s Mill. In 1841 it was used for paper making. In 1881 it was used for manufacturing blotting paper. From 1898 onwards, the mill served as an adjunct to Marsh Mill in paper making. By the 1930s the complex had become derelict.
