Haydon Mill Farm, Aylesbury
A long-established mill site, dating back to Domesday, the mill was spelt Hedon or Heydun in earlier times. A brick and slate building, with a brick wheelhouse, the mill had already become very dilapidated by the 1930s, although much of the machinery remained. The wheel was still in place, measuring 11 ft in diameter by 8 ft 3 inches across. In the 1890s it was powered by water and steam, and it probably remained in working order in the late 1920s. It is now a Grade II listed building.
