Historic Mill known as Bunnings, Bullins or Cappers Mill.  Research by Bob Houghton suggests there was a Mill on the site in 1705 and may be mentioned in the Doomsday Book.

Bob’s document on Whittington Trades History  lists millers from 1753 when Thomas Capper was the first miller, up to 1921.

Now  converted to a private residence.
