On the River Thames. Now used as a residence, when it was converted some fine decorative date stones were preserved. Two breast-shot wheels (17 ft by 9 ft 6 inches, and 16 ft by 8 ft), with Thames adjustable outside bearings, were also retained. The mill had a long and varied life: in 1866 it was active with corn and bone grinding, in 1910 it was a flock mill, and in 1922 it was generating electricity.

This mill had a breastshot waterwheel.
