A small stream which flowed from Crich, through Mill Green, carried a number of mills, some of which were corn mills. One of these is near to Fairfield Farm, close to a surviving mill pond, and is thought to be 18th century. (1)
At c. SK 359 534 are the remains of a dam wall, which was associated with the former bobbin mill owned by Isaac Bowmer. It was originally a water corn mill built by Enoch Harrison in 1760. The mill itself was destroyed by fire in 1886. (2)
