On the River Ouse, there are early references to this mill from 1790 and 1846. Records from 1907 indicate that for a period the mill was steam powered. This stone and brick mill was still in occasional use in the 1930s, when a new waterwheel had recently been fitted. It was last worked in the 1950s by the Pyms, who sold it in 1966. It was then converted into a residence, with all machinery but the wheel and horizontal and vertical shafts stripped out, and the first floor access doors converted to balconies.
