This watermill was built in 1854. It is on the site of a medieval fulling mill, next to the river crossing of Yore Bridge. It replaced a late 18th century cotton mill that burnt down in 1853. This was a combined corn and woollen mill. By the late 19th century it was used only as a corn mill, making it one of the largest in the Dales.
