Former C18 -C19 water-powered corn mill, adapted circa 1900 to form electricity-generating and water-pumping station for the Rothschild estate at Ashton village and Ashton Wold. Housed the Dragonfly Museum until 2001, since unoccupied. Historic England grant aided localised urgent repairs of building fabric in 2014/15 and urgent mill machinery repairs in early 2016.
