There has been a watermill here on the River Evenlode since the Domesday Book and it was probably originally used for grain or flax milling. The mill became a sawmill and is located within Combe Yard that contained the workshops which served the vast Blenheim Estate. The mill is now powered by an 1852 beam engine.  Water was last used in the 1950s, and the 13ft diameter by 8ft wide lower breast-shot waterwheel has since been restored.  Light refreshments on steaming days.
