Ledwyche House is formed from the west wing of Henley Mill which dates from the 17th Century. Henley Mill, notable for its two overshot steel water wheels and complete watermill mechanism, was listed in October 1986, Heritage England List Entry Number 1383674, in recognition of its intact water wheel mechanism and many period features that include multi-pane casement windows with segmental brick arches over, plain tiled roofs and ornamental brickwork, with alterations in the 18th, 19th and 20th Centuries and was converted into three residential properties in 1987. Ledwyche House is understood to have also been used as a meeting hall for the hamlet of Henley at which time the current living room was open to the vaulted roof and overlooked by a mezzanine floor.
