A water mill here was advertised for sale in the Derby Mercury in 1773 as having 'three pairs of stones and a dressing machine for flour'. A mill at Woolley Moor is marked on the maps of both Burdett and the first Ordnance Survey of 1840. No millers' names have been identified. It was standing out of use in the 1920s and the site is now beneath the waters of Ogston Reservoir.
