Nyetimber Mill was built in the early 1840s and was working until tailwinded in 1915. The sails were on the mill until they were struck by lightning in 1927. The mill became derelict and was burnt out in 1962, leaving the windshaft perched above the ivy covered tower. The mill was converted to a house by 2005.
