Horsemongers Lane, West Lane, Mill Street

The name change in 1861 was by the Corporation’s Paving Committee.

The first edition Ordnance Survey 25” scale map (1864) shows the site occupied by Home Mill, its associated millpond and an orchard. Home Mill straddles the millpond with the northern part of the mill extending beyond the present site boundary.

Home Mill was demolished sometime between WWII and 1962 when the dairy buildings were first shown on an Ordnance Survey map.

The north end of The Island Creameries has been built over the site of Home Mill. The millpond is occupied by the rest of the buildings right up to the mill cottages attached to Westminster Mill. The Lukely Brook runs in culverts under the Creameries.

This mill was at one time under the ownership of Leigh Thomas & Co. Ltd., who are still using Pan Mill.

Isle of Wight Creameries built 1936, had its factory and delivery premises on the site in Mill Street with Old Westminster Lane and Lukely Brook.
