Apparently the Mill finished operating in the 1920s. All machinery, wheel etc, is said to have been stripped out. Some stones in the structure, of deep red sandstone, are claimed to originate from the old "Abbey", and the surrounding ground in general may be an area of considerable archaeological interest. Listed Group A with Abbey Old School and Abbey Mill Farm.
