The explore :

I had this on my “todo “ list for a while now , so on a late wensday evening we hopped in the car and dove the hour and bit down to the mill, was surprised that it was so easy to get to ( on public footpath ) anyways once we got there the sun was setting fast and didn’t really have much time

The mill was built in 1884; the previous structure was destroyed in a fire reported in the Sussex Advertiser, 30-9-1884. In the early twentieth century a two-sack roller plant was installed. A further fire in 1908 caused damage to the plant. Waterpower was used until 1945; a steam engine was used sparingly. After 1945 the mill relied on electricity.
