Vivers Mill is a listed converted Water Mill with a long and interesting history, which was sympathetically converted into a substantial home a number of years ago. It is understood there has been a Mill on the site since 1198, when instructions were issued to cut down trees in Dalby Forest and be brought to the site. It was a Paper Mill for a long time and was once owned by Joseph Rowntree, before he sold it in 1740 to start the chocolate factory. It later become a Flour Mill and continued producing flour up until 1970.
Today it offers sympathetically converted accommodation which is arranged over four floors and is currently used for Bed and Breakfast purposes, and can either be continued to be used to generate an income or alternatively it could be an excellent private home. It includes many interesting features such as the working water wheel, the associated milling machinery and drive shaft that runs through the building together with the smooth marble like French stones in the sitting room which all of these features are visible for people to see. There are a number of exposed beams and trusses together with stone walls and flooring, which adds to the character of the property.
