St. Helens Gate Mill or Low Mill
A corn mill was attached to the Teresa Cottage / Hall Garth site and it became a saw mill at the end of the 19th century. It carried on as a saw mill until the second world war. Some references clearly describe Low Mill attached to the Hall Garth / Teresa cottage site, however K.J. Allison in "East Riding Water Mills", and one map, has White Mill called Low Mill.
