Situated on the Sor Brook, this mill was referred to as Collesmill in 1444. It has been used for a variety of purposes. It was first a corn mill, was converted to paper in 1684, then was used for bone-grinding, and reverted to a corn mill during the first world war. The 18 ft by 7 ft b/s metal wheel was still workable in the early 1980s.

This mill had a breastshot waterwheel.
