873-1/2/510 Mill to north-east of The Meadows
(The Meadows not included)
Corn mill, disused. Late C18 and early C19. A 2-part building
in a long narrow range, at right angles to and N of the mill
house. Rubble, some brick dressings, half-hipped slate roof.
The left-hand section, probably the earlier, is in 2 storeys,
with tall 2-light small-pane casements each side of plank
doors at each level; the ground floor has some stone V-joint
quoins at either end. The longer section, to the right, is in
3 storeys, with 4 shallow 6-pane lights at first and second
floors, and, at the ground floor, a plank door, 2-light
casement, wide pair of plank doors, and a small 9-pane light.
All openings have shallow brick segmental heads, mainly
inserted in the later C20. The left gable has a 3-light
casement at eaves level, and the right gable has a deep-set
first-floor door above a plank ground-floor door. The rear has
scattered openings, and, in the older section, to the right, a
broad brick segmental arch over the leat entry.
INTERIOR: retains the main wheel at the left-hand end; this is
an overshot wheel in 3 sections, approx 2.2m diameter, and
approx 4m wide. There are remnants of the supports for the
stones above. Early rough beams remain throughout, floors have
been generally renewed in the late C19; the 3-storey section
has lost the upper floor, the cut-off ends of floor joists
remain in the walls.
One of several mills on the Wey, and unusually not as yet made
into dwellings. The building is grouped with the mill house,
The Meadows (not included), and a domestic range to the E. The
dry leat remains.
