Altered double-chamfered openings to the left of this include a 2-light window.
A continuous hoodmould follows the openings. The projecting right part has
various altered double-chamfered openings with continuous hoodmould with spiral
stop at right end. The upper floor is C19. The rear elevation has a round-arched
opening to left and a wide square-headed opening to right, both for water courses
at ground-floor level. Two 2-light double-chamfered windows (one possibly reset)

Interior: A symmetrical arrangement with a small chamber to each end containing
a wheel pit. In the central chamber are mountings for the machinery.
The mill was powered by water brought by a leat from the River Dearne. A large
stone drain led from the leat to the Monk Bretton Priory (q.v.) where it flushed
the kitchen and reredorter and then returned to the leat.
