Smock mill of Circa 1800. Octagonal weatherboarded structure on a rectangular

This mill originally stood at Chinham Farm, Farningham where the miller in the
early C19 was David Norton. It was moved in 1880 by his grandson, Tanner Norton,
to its present site, where it stood beside a post mill which was burnt down in 1909.
A stone in the foundations is marked "Minnie Louisa Norton, 21st April 1880". The
mill last worked in 1928.
