Vobster Inn Bridge, which carries the lane over the Mells River, is dated 1764, and is Grade II listed.History and descriptionIn the Domesday Book of 1086 the village was known as "Mulne" meaning several mills. The parish was part of the hundred of Frome.Around 1500 Mells seems to have been known as Iron Burgh, as a result of the iron ore extracted in the area.During the 19th and early 20th centuries Mells and surrounding villages had several coal mines on the Somerset coalfield, much of which may have supplied the iron works of James Fussell. The Old Ironstone Works is a biological Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the population of Greater and Lesser Horseshoe bats.
