On the Cherwell, the mill was converted from corn to paper in the 1600s. By 1970 the mill had largely gone and only a few features remained to identify the site. In the 1980s, the waterways were still extant, with some gear in the head water and part of the breast-shot wheel in the chamber.

This mill had a breastshot waterwheel.
