This building is on the site of a manorial corn mill dating from Norman times. The will of the miller in 1656 shows he was making indigo dye from woad probably grown locally. This was used in the dye house opposite. The mill featured in a painting by J. M. W. Turner in 1797. It was an indigo mill until it became a private house about 1850
