Fort Green Mill was built in 1824. It was converted into a house in 1902. During the Second World War it was used as a gun emplacement.
It was put up for sale in 2016.
Fort Green Mill is a four-storey tower mill. It had four patent sails and the domed cap was winded by a fantail. It had two pairs of millstones. A photograph of the working mill (above) shows that the sails were double patents carried on a cast-iron windshaft and the fantail had six blades.
There is an inscription, formerly above one of the doors, now on a wall "Herren skal bevare din udgang og din indgang". It means "The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in," Psalm 121 verse 8.
