Constructed in 1816 by the Dock Mill Society as a replacement for the Old Dock Mill. It was possibly the largest mill in the county, having seven floors, and was originally crowned with a 20 foot statue of the goddess Ceres. It had four pairs of stones. In 1829 a steam mill was built on the premises. The Society sold the mill in 1857. Roller mills were added in the 1880s. Wind power ceased to be used in 1905. It was demolished in 1923.
