Cossington Mill History 
This stunning Grade II Listed former water mill is renowned to have been originally used for corn milling up until 1657, where both corn and paper milling were carried out under the same roof until 1827. Following this it was solely used to mill corn until 1928, when the machinery was removed and the mill gradually fell into disrepair and dilapidation. In 1938 the property was purchased for conversion into tea rooms, changing hands and being altered and restored to form a restaurant, the Cossington Mill Restaurant was exceptionally well known and respected and finally closed in 2002. Since then planning permission has been applied for and with the latest granting in 2013, overall to convert into a stunning family home with carport, ample off road parking and generous garden frontage onto the River Soar and having fishing and mooring rights. Thus creating a lifestyle opportunity for the purchasers of this property.
