Heatherslaw Mill started life as an 18th century corn mill, which was extended and remodelled around 1830. Inside is a double mill with two wooden undershot wheels driving two sets of machinery. The mill remained partially in use until 1946. It has since been partially restored; the upper mill is in working order with 1830s machinery, but the lower mill awaits restoration. This is a grade II* Listed Building protected by law.
