Notes / History From a painting in the private collection of the Rev James Bourne. The date of the painting is unknown however it pre-dates the current mill building.

Rent rolls from the 1680s refer to a ‘newly constructed mill’ run by Mr Westbrook. By the 18th century it was grinding tobacco into snuff, using a two-wheel arrangement.

The current mill dates from c.1804 and was properly constructed by
Martin Peakes & Co, tobacconists of London.
