SJ 83 NW CHAPEL AND HILL CHORLTON C.P.
Former mill, now disused and ground floor converted to agricultural
use. Re-built 1848 (date inscribed on keystone over first floor entrance
on west side), presumably on the site of an earlier mill. Roughly
coursed sandstone blocks, slate Mansard roof with flat top. Tower,
square on plan, with lower 2-storeyed gabled projection to south and
later purple brick lean-to above stream to east. 3 storeys with loft
lit by half-dormers (gabled on south and east sides); chamfered
mullion windows on north, 2 with 2 lights on first floor and one with
3 lights to ground; opening for chute beneath right-hand first floor
mullion; entrance under wide segmental arch on west with access to
first floor above; ashlar floor band all round beneath loft. Interior:
no machinery survives except wheel for hoist in loft; heavy beams to
ground and first floor ceilings supported on plain stone corbels.
Immediately to the north of the brick lean-to is a small twin-arched
bridge, part brick/part stone. The late C19 millhouse, latterly known
as Rose Cottage, which abuts the mill on the west, is not of special
interest, and is not included. The mill is in poor state of repair
due to neglect at the time of re-survey (1984).
