The watermill was built in the 1670s by Sir Samuel Morland for irrigation and grinding corn. In 1731 it was redesigned by William Kent to resemble a church. In 1859 an iron waterwheel was added by Charles Burrell, the traction engineers of Thetford. In 2000/2001 the Duke of Grafton and English Heritage fully restored the wheel and the building.
