Elizabeth Emms inherited the mill from R. Hammond and then passed the site to J. Eagleton who passed it to the Yarmouth & North Norfolk Railway Company who levelled the site in 1879.

On the west side of Nelson Road at its commencement is the Cemetery already mentioned. On the east-side opposite the Cemetery stood "Ransome's Mill" which burnt down in 1852.
Further south on the same side is "Skinner's_Mill" ... In 1867 a man employed in this mill got entangled with the machinery and was crushed to death.
