Built some 200 years ago, Rolling Mill is recorded as being operated by the Hutchinsons who had a rolling mill since 1818 for the manufacture of lead sheet and pipe (and maybe for leaded-light glazing bars). Its water wheel was fed from Foster Beck via the overshot Foster Beck Mill (later the Watermill pub and now converted to apartments). The mill was also known as Brigg House Mill.

Mr Hanley Hutchinson was still operating the mill in the early 1870’s and processing of Greenhow lead continued until the 1890’s. In the early 1900’s the mill became a "rope-walk" for stretching and twisting the fibres, working in cooperation with Atkinson’s flax spinning mill at Glasshouses. The mill finally closed in 1966.

The property is now in need of modernisation and refurbishment, the other half of the mill has been fully refurbished by the current owners and really shows the potential on offer. With well proportioned accommodation, sizeable gardens and an idyllic location Rolling Mill Cottage would make a fantastic family home or retirement retreat. Solar panels have been installed which produce an annual income.
