HISTORIC GODALMING

Ockford Mill, Portsmouth Road

 

Ockford Mill building in 2008

The mill and mill pond behind are shown on Rocque's map of Surrey, which was published in 1768. The mill pond is named Hock Water, which is believed to be derived from the 'Oak Water'.


The mill has been used for corn and sack-making: the buildings have been used for associated trades. The whole has been converted to offices and light production units.
