The last wheels being fitted in 1870 The milling continued until 1993.The site is now a site of many small shops much of the workings remain some of the main buildings are in poor repair with the rear roof covered with sheeting.The advantage of the shopping centre at the mill is you can explore the mill (while looking at the shops or not).
