The mill was originally owned by Ralph Crompton. The mill was passed on to Robert Fletcher who worked at the company from 1830 and had work his way up the company ranks.
After his death in 1865 the mill was passed on to his sons and then to his grandsons.
The mill specialised in cigerette papers and the bleaching of paper.
The company was bought out in 1986 and by 2001 was declared bankrupt and closed over night.
