Coxes Mill is thought to date from around 1770. It certainly existed by 1776 as an iron mill, taking in scrap iron and making it into hoops for wooden barrels.

When in use as an iron mill a hammer powered by water  wheel was used. This delivered up to 45 blows a minute and could be heard a significant distance away, much to the annoyance of certain gentry.
