This small mill was built in the late-eighteenth century. A major rebuild in the 1890s added an extra storey. It continued to work until the early 1950s.

This village pump was built to commemorate the courage of a local man, Frederick Freshney, who was a volunteer in the Boer War, and served as a trooper in the Imperial Light Horse.

He was severely wounded in the British defeat at Colenso in 1899, and was brought back to Saltfleet paralysed.  He died in 1906 at the age of only thirty two.
