A mill on the River Doe Lea, just outside Bolsover, is marked on Burdett's map . On the first edition of the Ordnance map in 1836 it is named as 'Sutton Mill'. It is shown being fed by a long leat. Mill Farm is marked on the current map. (1) It is possible that a mill is shown in this approximate location on Willilam Senior's map of Bolsover of 1637 - however, the photocopy available to the HER is poor quality and this interpretation is uncertain. (2)
The mill is shown on the 1st ed. 25" OS map as 'Sutton Mill (Flour)' (3) but by the end of the century it is marked as 'disused', and the millpond is depicted as having silted up. (4) The 3rd ed. 25" OS map indicates the pond had gone by that time, depicting it only as a slight earthwork. (5)
