1 The saw mill on Lord Hertford's estate is situated behind Arrow Rectory, comprising various timber buildings on low brick courses with tile roofs. The date of the saw mill is unknown, but a gas engine was installed here in 1900.
2 The sawmill buildings at the northern end of the mapped site are shown on the OS One Inch:Old Series map dated 1831, when it must have been a water-driven mill.
3 The Arrow Parish Tithe Map (1847) shows the sawmill. Parcel 163 is described as a "house and timber yard" in the ownership of the Marquis of Hertford.
4 During the 20th century, the activities of the sawmill have spread south into an area of land which appears to have been garden and glasshouses associated with Arrow Rectory. It is shown as such on the OS 1:2500 First Edition (1881-1890)
