The mill building burnt down in 1914.  The 17th century mill-house has been restored

In 1633, Frigg's Mill is recorded to have included fulling mills and a grist mill. It was being worked as a cloth mill in 1783 and in 1812, was said to consist of a grist mill and a newly-erected cloth mill.

By 1820, however, James Hillman was employing it as a corn mill, and it remained a corn mill under Samuel Sims (1856) and his sons. Steam power was applied in the mill before 1889. They were succeeded soon after by Kimmins Drew & Co. who worked the mill until about 1908.
