Summary

Stonebridge Watermill was marked at this location on Faden's map of 1797. It has been suggested that the present building used as a house at this location was originally the mill. The building dates to the late 18th century with various 19th and 20th century additions. No mill machinery survives in the house which may indicate that this was in fact the miller's house rather than the mill itself.
