The mill was bought by Edward Bibby in 1830. In 1878 the mill was passed to his grandchildren, Joseph and James Bibby, who ran the business J Bibby and Sons. The mill was used around this time to first produce compound animal meal.
In 1885 a fire causing £2,600 of damages gutted the mill, which was then left abandoned.
