Completed in 1804, and originally used for corn milling, this mill lost its sails in 1904. The mill was then worked by steam for a period, before ceasing work in 1926. It became a house conversion by 1931. A tall tower mill with 8 sides, it originally had four sails. In 1969 the cap was rebuilt. In 1973 the four cross arms remained, as did the windshaft and brakewheel.
