Burnham Overy lower watermill is situated by the staithe. It was built in 1790 by Edmund Savory who was a tenant on the Walpole Estate. The course of the River Burn was altered to provide a mill dam and the new cut that was dug for the mill was tidal until before WW2, with the surge being controlled by a sluice about a mile downstream. The complex > Link consisted of a granary, a blacksmith's shop, waggon lodges and stables, cowhouses and yards, bullock sheds and yards as well as cart and implement sheds > Link - Link and 40 acres of surrounding land that was farmed by the owner. The cottages > Link to the north were inhabited by farm workers. When production ceased in 1939 the watermill was taken over by the National Trust.
