The mill was constructed c. 1759, for Mr William Hutton, who originally had the mill built to serve as a paper mill. After the paper milling proved to be unsuccessful, it was switched to corn milling. This endeavour also failed and the mill was sold in 1762 to a Mr Josiah Honeybourne, who used it for brass polishing.
