Water mill. Early C19. Random rubble stone, Welsh slate roof with
coped verges. Three-storey, 2-window front facing farmyard;
planked door to ground floor and two small 2-light casements to
second floor. Rear facing downstream has four 2-light flush
mullioned windows to ground floor, three 2-light flush mullioned

This mill originally used as a fulling mill and converted to use as
a corn mill in 1840s. A mill is mentioned here in Domesday and a
fulling mill here was leased from Keynsham Abbey during C15 and
C16, Thomas Baily bought the property at the Dissolution and Leland
recorded the thriving mills at Stowford. The Stillman clothier
family of Trowbridge owned the mill in late C18 and let it to the
Mullings family who remained here until mid C19.
