SO 79 NW 15/79 Rindleford Mill


Watermill. Mid C19 with C18 origins. Buff brown brick with sandstone in part and
plain-tile twin-span roof. 4 storeys. 2-window range to front, 4-window to rear,
of 3-light, mainly fixed, windows under segmental brick arches. Centre of front
has double height single doorway and projecting wooden hoist gantry on top floor
partly within central gable. Further opening to far right on ground floor. Left
half front and up to 2nd storey height is of sandstone marking the extent of the
C18 structure. This walling continues round to the left end where there are also
various windows including one in each gable, and two adjoining 2-storey extensions,
that to right with brick lateral stack. Doorways to ground and first floors. Right
end has similar fenestration and an extension in poor condition housing a large
cast-iron, wood and metal sheet undershot waterwheel approximately 15' in diameter
and 7' wide. Interior: chamfered spine beams to ground floor in C18 part but this
altered probably in 1846, date on beam (also John ,....), which may be date of rest.
Most of machinery has gone but the bedstones of 2 pairs of millstones remain
together with a third pair within an iron cover inscribed 'Kay and Hilton,
Liverpool' with some remains of hoists and chutes. Mid C19 cast-iron spiral stair-
case. Bolted king post roofs. History: originally a fulling mill in the medieval
period and used in early C18 as an oil mill, the present structure was a flour mill
and also from end of C19 was used to pump water from a well to a reservoir through
belting from a pulley on the wheel spindle. In 1936 it was estimated that 30,000
gallons daily were being pumped up to Bromley reservoir.
