Stogursey, being a very large and populous parish had several mills. Its position between the Quantocks and the sea meant that water was fairly plentiful. Two mills were recorded in the 11th century, probably at Wick and south of the village near the castle. Both mills survive with machinery. Wick mill went out of use in the late 19th century and was partly demolished but the millbuilding and machinery have survived. The Castle or Town mill survives almost in its entirety. In the mid 12th century a mill was built at Monkton where milling continued until the 1860s. Shurton had a mill by the early 13th century, which remained in use until the early 1930s but was later converted to a dwelling. The mills at Durborough and Fairfield were also of medieval origin but like Monkton have been demolished. In the east of the parish, possibly because it was flatter, windmills were constructed at Chalcott and on Wall Common.
