The Water Mill

  • Description

    "....The Manor of Tocketts is recorded in the Domesday Book from 1086 named as Tosceton. The mill, fields, woodland and the valley of Tocketts were originally purchased by the first Earl of Zetland and throughout the coming centuries various Millers had tenancies for the dwelling house, corn mill and land. The mill had high-grade stones that meant it was able to process wheat, rye, beans, peas and oats. In addition, the ground floor of the mill was used as a buttery. Milling declined after WW2 and the water wheel was decommissioned from commercial work in 1960....."
