The name, as it appears on the 2nd edition of the historic 25-inch O. S. map of 1898, suggests that this site housed a fulling mill, but there was an authenticated fulling mill only forty metres to the east. They shared the same leat, which had already turned the Upper Corn Mill some 80 metres upstream. The 1st edition map of 1879 depicts the site as a Dye Works, suggesting that the two sites worked together, contributing two different processes in the wool-finishing trade. The repositioning of the name 'Tucking Mill' on the 3rd edition map (c 1918) reinforces this hypothesis. Both buldings probably worked in conjunction with the Upper and Lower woollen factories further downstream.
