Mount Ephraim Mill was a corn post mill constructed in 1735 and blown down in 1955. The mill is labelled on the second edition OS Map (1897-1900) but is probably visible on the first edition map (1862-1875) (1). The mill was built at Ringleton Park in 1735 and was moved to the Mount Ephraim site in the 1830s. In 1918 production switched to cattle cake. Production ceased in 1935 (2).
