WALLERTHWAITE (west side, off)

5/67 Low Mill approximately 60
metres north of Markington


Water mill, now disused. Early C19. Cobble and rubble with limestone and
sandstone quoins. Westmorland slate roof. 3 storeys terraced into hill
slope, 1 x 3 bays. South (gable) front has central board doors to ground
and first floors, with sawn stone lintels. Flanking and first-floor windows
are small, with 16-pane cast-iron frames with cambered brick heads. Similar
ramped track leading to loading door with incised lintel at second floor
level. Left return: sluice to mill race for central mill wheel. Paired
gutter brackets and gable copings to left and right returns. Right return:
attached 2-storey lean-to range, originally a cart shelter and later an
engine house, has 3 windows to each floor, the central first-floor window
altered to a door. Single-storey outbuilding attached to south-west corner
was a stable, now used as garage. Interior: the machinery is largely intact
and includes breast-shot wheel, gearing to control sluices, cogs, 2 pairs of
grindstones. The building also housed a corn-drying kiln. During the C20
it ground mainly oats and barley, using 'grey stones' from Derbyshire, and
maize, using iron-bound 'Fench stones'. Low Mill was probably built to
replace the High Mill at the west end of the village and itself closed in
