Statement of Interest

Originally the house of the miller, but occupied by the foreman of the mill from the mid-Victorian period after a villa had been built for the miller. It was purchased in 1958 by Mr & Mrs Melrose Morrison, who landscaped the garden and altered the line of the lade. Mr Melrose Morrison was a great-grandson of Andrew Melrose, founder of the Melrose Tea firm.

The outhouse was built as the Mill Office, and was converted into a 3-car garage in the late 1950s. Subsequent owners used it as an Art Gallery.
