Hall Green B13
Sarehole Mill

(Formerly listed under Shard End B13)
(Formerly listed as Sarehole Mill House under Hall Green)


The existing corn mill (restored 1960's) is substantially a rebuild, on an early mill site, of circa 1764-68. L plan block of one and two storeys red brick with gable end clay tile roofs. Brick dentil eaves. Barn at right angles to mill building with ventilation in gable end. The 2 storey and attic main mill building has a restored bracketted, cabled, weatherboarded hoist. Segmental arched small pane iron frame window. Single storey south end of range was used as a blade grinding shop and adapts as living accommodation in part, on reverting to corn grinding in the 1850's. At this time additional power was provided by the installation of a steam engine, the stack of which is built on to the north cable end of the main mill (tapering square section with cornice cap). The well preserved machinery was probably installed when corn winding resumed in the 1850's (probably brought from Trittiford Mill) and has a high breast shot cast iron wheel in the main building with a smaller overshot wheel in the former blade grinding plant to the south. Complete set of stones, gearing, hoppers etc.
