4/182 Keats Mill
Small grist mill with waterwheel. Probably 1865, the date on the nearby house.
Exposed local stone rubble; slate roof.
Plan: small single cell building facing east and terraced into the hillslope with
the disused mill leat on the left (south) side. There is a contemporary cartshed on
the right (north) end. The mill is 2 storeys.
Exterior: the mill has an irregular 2-window front of original casements containing
rectangular panes of leaded glass (a couple have repairs). The front doorway is
right of centre and contains its original plank door. The roof is gable-ended
stepping down from the mill to the cartshed. The cartshed has an open end. On the
left (south) end there is the remains of the cast iron-framed waterwheel. The leat
is disused but the wheel was either breast shot or overshot.
Interior: is well-preserved. The structural carpentry is plain and all original.
The ground floor room has a stone flagged floor and here is the gearing. On the
first floor is a single set of grind stones with the bins and other milling
Keats Mill was last used in 1944.
