Cirk Mill was in Cirk meadow to the west of the church and was an ancient mill that had disappeared by the 1800s. The sluice columns still remain and on the east side of the stream the brickwork seems to resemble
a structure capable of housing a pitwheel.

The mill was situated at the southern end of the small lake that had been formed by damming the stream. The farmstead to the southwest of the mill (south in real life) had also disappeared by the beginning of the 1900s although it was still showing on the 1839 Tithe Map.
