Notes NOTES: The core of the present building dates from the 15th century. It was increased in size in the 1670s, when the second waterwheel on the village side was added, and again around 1700. A new barn was added in 1777 and the mill continued in work until just after the Second World War. It was restored in 1979 and brought back into use in 1980, when this image was taken.
