Meeten's Mill was originally built at Monkmead, and moved to West Chiltington in 1838. The mill first appeared on the West Chiltington tithe map of 1840. The mill was refitted by William Cooper, the Henfield millwright in 1865. It was working until 1922, when it was stripped of machinery and house converted. The millstones went to a watermill at Coolham.
Rock Mill is a two-storey smock mill on a two-storey stone base, with a stage at first-floor level. She had four Spring sails. The cap is in the Kentish style, winded by a fantail. The mill drove three pairs of millstones. The mill only has two sails and the fantail is missing. Various extensions have been made to the smock tower.
