plank door and 3-light multipane casement at ground floor. First floor has two 2-
light 7-pane C19 casements and second floor has two 2-light C19 casements of 4 panes
and 3 panes, all with segmental brick arches with keystones. The hoist housing is at
upper level to left, with gabled front. There is a straight joint in the masonry to
left; at ground first and second floors a 2-light 5-pane C19 casement and a stable
type plank door to right, all with segmental brick arches with keystones. At the
left end there is an overshot waterwheel, in cast iron with wooden floats and wooden
launder. C19 casement at each level. At the right end there is a large C20
addition, not included in the listing.
Interior: Not accessible at time of survey (September 1987) but said to contain the
watershaft and some other machinery, with millstones, and a wheelpit inside the mill
to rear right.
