Smock mill, now a dwelling, and attached house. Early C19, altered in C20.
Mill, timber framed, plastered and weatherboarded, with fabric-covered cap.
House, timber framed, weatherboarded, roofed with slate. Mill octagonal, with
house extending to NW, and C20 wing to NE, forming an L-plan. Mill of 5 storeys
and cap, house of 2 storeys. The ground floor of the mill is plastered, with
one C20 casement on each of 6 sides and a C20 door to the SE. The remainder is
weatherboarded, with 4 C20 casements on each floor, and 2 loading doors on the
first floor. Stocks, sails and fantail gear. Ball finial on cap. SW elevation
of house, 3-window range of C20 casements. C20 door. Low-pitched roof. The
mill is reported to have been built in Cressing c.1770, and removed to Terling
c.1825 (A. Hills, Four Essex Windmills, Essex Review, XXXIX, 1930, 89) but no
confirmation of this has been traced. Internally, there are structural
indications of various alterations, and dismantling and re-erection is a
possibility. The mill was present in Terling in c.1818, initially designed for
grinding bark, and altered to corn milling soon afterwards. It worked until
1960, and was the last working windmill in Essex. The machinery has been
removed, but was fully recorded. (K. Farries, Essex Windmills, Millers and
Millwrights, I, 1981, 62, 69-70, II, 1982, 65-8, and V forthcoming).
