An 18th and early 19th century water mill built on the bank of the River Coquet near Felton. The mill included a corn mill with two kilns (high and low) as well as a saw mill, and was driven by three water wheels. The mill was still in use as a store in the 1950s and, in the 1970s, all the machinery was still intact. However, in the 1980s the inside of the building was remodelled and the water wheels broken up. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
