This mill, situated on the River Glyme, worked as a water pump. It had a breastshot wheel which operated a single-cylinder pump via a beam and cams. By 1970 this arrangement was in a ruined state and had been replaced by an electric pump. This was possibly the mill referred to in 18th-century records for the Kiddington estate.
