13/113 and 6/113 Mill House (formerly
15.3.55 listed as Brook House)


Possibly originally a paper mill, an inn in the C19, now a private house.
English-bond brickwork with tiled roofs and gable copings. Brick projecting
stack with 2 diagonally set flues bearing traces of arabesque decoration
in cement above. Further stack with 4 clustered flues on the ridge, right
of centre. Near symmetrical. 2 storeys and attics, 6 bays. 2 central bays
are surmounted by a gable with coping, apex finial and brick kneelers. Much
restored stone mullioned windows with square-headed lights and labels.
Those to the ground floor have sunk-chamfered surrounds and those to the
upper floor are ovolo-moulded. Gable has similar 3-light window. Central
elliptical-headed chamfered stone doorway. A mill race formerly passed
under the left-hand end of the structure.

Internal features (RCHM): left ground floor rooms have intersecting ceiling
beams, now cased but said to be unmoulded; central room has open fireplace
with plain timber bressummer and lightly chamfered stone jambs; first floor
rooms have plain beams resting on shaped brackets; roof of 4 plain collar-
beam trusses. (RCHM, Dorset, vol V, p 98, no. 14. Newman, J and Pevsner, N.
