For centuries there was a functioning mill at Cotes (on the A60) providing for the local community until 1973 when it was closed as the last working flour mill in the county.

There were two mills; the Lower Mill and the Upper Mill that were known as The King’s Mills and served the people of Loughborough. The Lower Mill is still situated on the A60 across the bridge from Cotes itself and is known as Cotes Mill, which today is home to the local kitchen company deVOL which was originally based in Quorn.
