Highdown New Mill was built in 1826. The mill was working until 1872. In 1880, the cap and sails were blown off. By the 1930s the mill was an ivy clad ruin. It was converted into a house in the early 1970s. The tower has recently been clad in wooden shingles.
Highdown New Mill is a four storey brick tower mill. It had four Patent sails and the beehive cap was winded by a fantail. The mill drove two pairs of millstones. All that remains today is the tower, with various additions and extensions.
