Hetton Mill at the northern end of the township below the confluence of Hetton Burn and Rough Dene. The mill belonged to the manorial lords of the township, the de Latons and their successors, but it does figure in a number of the charters issued by William de Laton in the 13th century, recording grants of land to free tenants, in particular Geoffrey Mody of Hetton and his descendants.
