The history of the village of Rossett is entwined with the history of Rossett Mill. The mill is listed as an historic building which is "as an exceptionally fine example of a 16th century timber-framed undershot corn mill". Situated close to the old Chester Road on the southern edge of the village of Rossett, Wrexham, it stands in its own grounds on the banks of the River Alyn. A mill for the villagers of Allington, Gresford, Burton and Llay was first built on this site in 1544. Intended as a 'free' mill to rival the King's Mill at Marford the original mill was demolished before a new mill, the current building, was built in 1588. This was extended in 1661, as evidenced by the inscription on the gables, around which time the Trevor family of Trevalyn Hall acquired both mills. In 1710 the millwright Robert Konrick undertook extensive repairs to the floors and waterwall. The mill was sketched by Turner in 1795. As of 2009 I am unable to ascertain opening hours of the old mill, if indeed it is still open to the public at all.
