A mill at Bedgreave is referred to in a settlement to the Darcy family in 1631.
Although apparently post-medieval the building is in the form of a medieval
single-cell mill which would have grindstones raised on a platform at one end
lit by side-wall windows, the drive coming from a pit beneath; survivals of such
medieval structures are exceedingly rare.
