Also known as Bledlow Lower Mill or Lower Saunderton Mill, this mill lies on the Risborough Stream. A large building constructed of red brick, with areas painted cream, at the time of Stanley Freese’s visit in about 1930 the exterior had become disfigured by the attachment of tarred galvanised ironwork. It was still in working order. In its life, the mill has been used both for grinding corn and paper making.

This mill had an overshot waterwheel.
