On the Wey – a mill has been on this site at least since Domesday. It was a
corn mill until 17th then
from 1645 a paper mill called King's Mill, which belonged to Catherine of Braganza,
and which was visited by John Evelyn. In 1673 it was leased to the Company of
White Papermakers of England but it then became an iron and brass mill in 1703
by the Bristol Company of Wiredrawers.. Paper was made again in 1794, and then
corn again. In 1930 it was closed as part of a flood prevention scheme. It now
stands on a romantically situated island., it is Weatherboarded and rather
Mill House. Lumpish
