A former corn mill in the village of Thorney, Somerset.

The mill buildings are in private occupation, but can be seen from the adjacent public footpath, which crosses the River Parrett weir by a footbridge.

The mill has a wide wheel, partly covered by a tiled roof. It was made by Coombs (Beaminster) in 1866 [1]
