Denton Mill


Former water corn mill on the site of an earlier mill; documentary evidence shows that there was a mill at this location in the late C16. The earliest phase of the present building is probably late C17 or early C18, with later C18 and C19 additions. Calciferous sandstone coursed rubble walls, Welsh slate roof with coped gables. 2 storeys, 3 bays. Former entrance has been covered by right angle extensions of 2 and one storeys; from the interior of the extension it is possible to see the initials R.W. 1724, I.F. 1726, W. 1726 H. and C.R. 1796, over original entrance. Small square unglazed openings. Wheel and machinery missing. Listing does not include the later brick extensions in front of C19 additions.
