This mill stood at the north-east corner of the junction of Winchester Road and Romsey Road. It was a traditional mill going back to pre-Conquest times and was powered by Shirley Ponds, a series of three ponds fed by Tanner’s Brook and Holly Brook. The mill and ponds are shown on a map of 1778. By the early 19th century it housed an iron foundry and later a brewery. By 1900 it was owned by the Royal Mail Shipping Company and operated as a laundry.
