(S2) shows that Engine House Carr did take its name from this pump which was the first steam mill in the area and was unique in that it was a corn mill with a scoop wheel. Milling ceased before 1926 after which it was used for pumping alone. It was demolished in the 1940s or 1950s and only a few bricks remained in the 1960s.
