In 1923 the mill was burnt down but replaced the following year by a steel frame and concrete building. The appearance of this building was much criticised and when the mill went out of business in 1972, the building was demolished. The beam pump which was located under the mill was saved and restored in the period 1976-80 by members of Sussex Industrial Archaeology Society.
