Notes / History The snuff mills on the Morden Hall Estate each had its own waterwheel. These can be seen in this picture. The undershot wheels were driven by water from the River Wandle. One wheel has now been removed whilst the other did have its paddles removed these have now been replaced. However as the levels of the river have dropped the wheel can no longer be driven by it.
