weatherboarded, and underbuilt in brick, now painted, in 1833 (dated brick in
rear wall). Half hipped, tiled roof with inserted stacks. Three bay plan
with narrower bay for the undershot wheel, now removed. Two storeys and
attic. Mid C20 dormers to rear wall. Small pane mid-C20 casements to front
and ground storeys and door of similar period in round headed arch. Inside::
side purlin roof with timbers of substantial scantling to principals. Some
inserted ceiling timbers e.g. at ground floor in the hall, but the main posts
are original and have jowled heads. A watermill is recorded here in Domesday
Book. It is associated with Sheene Manor, Meldreth (q.v.), nearby which was
given to the Carthusian monastery at Sheen, Surrey in early C15. At the
Dissolution it passed to Sir Robert Chester of Royston.
