Blue Mills
TL 81 SW 4/86 1.3.50.


An early C19 timber-framed and weather boarded water mill adjoining the
west end of the former Mill House, now called Mathyns. It stands back
from the road in a picturesque setting with a 5 arched brick sluice way
and a mill pond between the mill and the road. 2 storeys and attics.
The windows are double-hung sashes with glazing bars, in cased frames.
Roof slate, mansard, half hipped, with a hoist loft on the south front.
The interior has fine C19 water mill machinery, not now working but repaired
in 1949.

Blue Mills Bridge, Blue Mills and Mathyns form a good picturesque group.
