It was first mentioned in the Domesday Book A.D.1086, which means that it is the original Isle of Wight attraction!  1086 In Domesday Book it is stated that there are two mills at Calbourne, worth 6s. 3d. In later days it was originally describes as two Corn Mills under one roof, being a Wheat Mill and a Malt Mill known as Mylplace Mill with a Dwelling House and


Malthouse.

May 20th, 1592 Richard Urrey (in conveyance of land at Newtown) is described of Mylplace, Calbourne.
