Woodsome Old Mill
The old mill on the Dartmouth Estate at Woodsome ground corn and oats for the neighbourhood for many centuries, but is now used only for storage purposes. It is in the tenancy of Mr. Richard Redfearn, members of whose family have been tenants of the estate for three hundred years. Records of Woodsome Mill go much further back however. The first documentary reference to it is dated 1297. The mill, driven by water power, worked regularly up to the period of the First World War.
