SS 62 SE
1/132 Mill approximately 20 metres north-
west of Cawsey's Meethe Farmhouse
- II
Water mill. Probably late C18 (1796 carved on beam) remodelled and extended in early
to mid C19. Unrendered stone rubble. Slate roof with gable ends.
The mill consists of 2 undershot water wheels, one each side of the leat, the lofted
mill building itself straddling the leat with storage/granary facilities of single
cell plan to each side. The original core appears to consist of the left-hand side
section, the mill having been extended over the leat and on the right side in the
C19. The stone floor, with provision for one set of stones, is situated over the
right-hand section, with loft floor over left side.
Exterior: largely obscured by ivy, there appears to be 2 shuttered windows on each
floor and plank door at right end. Cambered arched lintel to leat entrance. Loft
door over plank door at left gable end.
Interior: 2 undershot wheels, the earlier, possibly late C18 wheel situated to left,
all timber construction and C19 wheel to right are largely intact, as is the gearing
and sluice arrangement. The millstones have been removed. Hopper arrangement
survives to left-hand section which has IH 1796 carved on cross ceiling beam.
