End gable has projecting quoins and round-headed window with keystone now obscured by lean-to roof. Central date plaque with band above. Right return: 3 sets of paired windows with square-faced surrounds and projecting sills, mostly unglazed. To right: a large overshot water wheel, now immobile, with 8 cast-iron spokes to each side and 42 buckets. Above it, a sectional cast-iron pentrough supported by a cast-iron stanchion. In the adjacent wall a blocked shouldered-lintel opening formerly allowed access to the wheel from inside the works. Wheel used until c1956. Dam and tail-race survive. Interior: massive flywheel now powered by electric motor. C19 4-stand in-line rolling mill still in use. The wheel is the largest example of its type to survive in Sheffield.
