To right, a 2-light window. Left return: on right 2 plain-stone-surround

is a channel, formerly the sluice; in the garden are the pond, which provided
the head of water, and the overflow channel. The building was converted
to 2 cottages in 1880 (deeds), probably at the time of building a new mill
lower down the hillside (on the mill pond).
