This mill is a substantial building, constructed of red and black bricks in a chequer pattern, with a slate roof, iron-framed windows and a chimney shaft. The first clear record of the mill dates from 1824. Originally built as a corn mill, this mill has served a number of roles. In 1853 it was milling corn, but by 1864 it was a paper mill. By the 1930s it was used for wood-turning.
