Downes Mill is of particular interest as this was believed to have been founded by John Mallet of Wooleigh. This later became part of the Downes Estate owned by the Buller family, of which Sir Redvers Buller was a member. The mill was leased by Malletts of the Dowland branch from the late 1800's to the 1960's.
