There has been a watermill on this site for centuries and is in fact mentioned in the Domesday Book, the existing Mill standing today is approximately 250 years old and is an over-shot mill which makes it very rare and only one of a few left in the country.

It was a working mill up until the 1930’s after which it fell into disrepair and was put on the “buildings at risk” register. The Mill was then bought in 1995 and developed and became a restaurant and hotel and continued as this until 2000 when it was converted to the The Plant and Craft Centre and now the Olde Watermill Shopping Village which continues today.
