The mill was built as a corn mill in the 17th century. It became a paper mill by 1789 and was the site of a riot in 1830 which destroyed the new Fourdrinier machine which was seen as threatening the jobs of workers. In the 1840s it became a corn mill again, and steam power was later added. In 1925 the site was bought by Sydney Mitford. The mill ceased work in the 1950s.
