with the mill dating to the circa late C18. Stone rubble walls, rendered on the
house. Asbestos slate roof hipped to the left end of the house, gabled to the mill.
Brick axial stack to house, originally at gable end.
The house originally had a 2-room and cross passage plan with the left-hand room

initially this addition was probably a barn. The mill is later than the house but
may replace an earlier structure. It is at right angles of rectangular plan with a
large room on each floor and the wheel housed within the structure at the rear in a
separate compartment divided by a solid wall. Its wheel was overshot and the leat

The house is 2 storeys; the mill was originally 3 storeys, but has had its upper
floors floors removed and is now single storey. The Mill has a gable end 2-window
front of which only the ground floor left-hand and second floor central window

Lower addition at left-hand end has irregular small window openings with a slit
window at the left-hand end.
