By the 1930s this mill, on the River Ouse, was standing idle. The internal machinery remained and the brick building was still in reasonable order, but the mill had been closed on health and safety grounds. In 1086, two mills were located in Wolverton, one of which probably occupied this site. In the 13th century, this mill was known as West Mill. In the early 20th century it was called Wood’s Mill, after Frank Wood the miller at the end of the 19th century.
