Traces only. Marden Mill was a small three storey brick and white weatherboard building which functioned until the early years of this century. John Russell remembered it as having two waterwheels, one an 8' overshot wheel turning two pairs of stones through conventional spur-gearing, and the other a heavy iron 12' breastwheel made by Reading Ironworks, which worked two pairs of stones through counter gearing. The mill was demolished between the wars but a few courses of brick walling survive, together with the massive wooden upright shaft in the barn which used to adjoin the mill. The watercourse has been diverted.
