Small window to west wall, first floor left. South wall has small window to first

Interior of mill is virtually complete with original floors, roof structure and
machinery. 2 sets of stones in-situ, but 1 stone removed from that to west.
Hoisting wheel or whim to first floor.
Formerly at least 6 watermills in this valley but this is the best surviving example,
complete with 2 wheels and associated buildings.
