Manor Mill


Corn and barley mill, (disused at time of Survey) and miller's house. C17 or earlier
origins with subsequent alterations. Stone rubble with remains of limewash ;
asbestos slate roof to house, gabled at ends with projecting right end stack and rear
lateral stack, with stone shafts ; corrugated iron roof to mill building, gabled at
Plan: Single-depth miller's house, 3 rooms wide with a central entrance into a
passage, the left end of the house with a higher roofline, single-storey rear lean-
to, 2 storey storage and stable block at right angles to the house forms an L plan.
The mill building is parallel to the house at the rear with a narrow yard between the
2 blocks and an overshot water wheel on the rear wall. The leat, no longer in use,
ran in a timber launder and then turned in a curve to run below the left end of the
miller's house and the storage and stable wing.
Exterior: 2 storey house, the front elevation 3 windows wide with regular
fenestration and a higher roofline at the left end which is slightly set forward.
Approximately central front door with a lattice porch and C19 2-pane sashes with
margin glazing. A 2-storey lean-to at the right end links the house to the mill
building. The storage and stable block has large double doors at the left, 3
doorways to the right, 2 windows and a loft entrance. The left gable end of the
house has a loft doorway in the attic storey, a first floor sash and a ground floor
casement. The overshot water wheel with timber buckets survives, as does the rather
decayed timber launder.
Interior: The right hand room has a chamfered, scroll-stopped axial beam, exposed
joists and an altered open fireplace. The room to the left of the passage has a
probably re-sited chamfered cross beam with a scroll nick stop. Considerable
survival of machinery in the mill building which has pegged roof trusses.
Group value with the Retreat and Millhead Cottage.
