2.12.77 Caudwells Mill
Flour mill. Built in 1874, bridging a broad mill race. Rock
faced and plain sandstone. Welsh slate roof. A rectangular
block of seven bays on the long side. Three storeys. The east
elevation has various brick and timber lean-to additions not of
special interest. Otherwise windows with iron frame fixed pane
glazing, stone lintels and sills. Twin semi-circular arches
over the mill race. The centre part of the east elevation is
raised with a 'clerestory', which houses the exhaust system. The
gable end to north has a projecting enclosed hoist and large
lean-to timber and corrugated iron canopy forming the loading
shed. The west side has regular spacing of iron framed windows
under stone lintels, except one enlarged window under an RSJ.
To the south west a lean-to corrugated iron and timber structure
not of special interest. The south gable end has a lower gabled
bay with a single window to each floor. The internal
construction is largely of timber, but with cast iron columns to
the ground floor to support the original millstones on the first
floor. The timber floors are butted with iron tongues. The
mill is driven internally by an American 'Little Giant' turbine
installed in 1898, and a Francis twin turbine installed in 1914.
The machinery dates mostly from 1914. The south end of the
building contains the wheat washing cleaning and provender mill
and storage facilities. The flour mill section is at the north
end. On the second floor are sifters dating from 1914. On the
first floor are two purifiers dating from 1932 and on the ground
floor are the roller mills dating mostly from 1905.
