Threshing barn and adjoining horse mill. Mid-late C18 barn with later

rectangular on plan with central through waggon entrance and horse mill
adjoining east side. 2-storey height with 3 tiers of openings, 5 internal
bays. West side: waggon entrance (doors missing) beneath timber lintel (a
reused section of timber framing) and recessed basket-arched panel. Bottom
tier of openings: to left, 3 blocked breather slits; to right, a pair of
blocked slits, a rectangular hatch and an inserted segmental-headed window
with glazing bars. Middle tier: to left, a single slit, and an inserted
board door beneath a cambered brick arch and blocked opening, flanked by
single casements with glazing bars and brick sills beneath similar arches;
to right, a partly-blocked opening with a board hatch door to lower half,
flanked by single slits. 5 slits to upper tier, flanking the blocked
openings. Stepped eaves. Shaped stone kneeler to left gable; C20 rebuilt
right gable. East side: waggon entrance similar to west side with later
brick blocking containing segmental-headed door. Bottom tier: to left, 3
slits and hatch; to right, 2 slits and door. Middle tier: to left, 2 slit

Dentilled brick eaves cornice. Horse mill adjoining to left: single storey,
with canted east end and south side incorporated in foldyard wall which is
not of special interest. Brick piers carring hipped roof. Open sides to
north and east, inserted dwarf wall to north-east side. Interior. Barn
contains flagstone threshing floor and 5-bay roof with tie beams to main
trusses, intermediate collared principal rafters and 2 tiers of staggered
butt purlins. Horse mill contains original machinery, comprising a
chamfered central spindle shaft with tongue stops and raking struts to cross
beams with harness attachment arms, and an upper drive wheel with iron
teeth. The spindle is pivoted on an iron pin resting in a socket stone.
Probably the most complete set of horse mill machinery surviving in South
Humberside. The barn may be contemporary with the nearby stable/dovecote
(qv) dated 1767. The ranges adjoining the barn and horse mill are not of
special interest.
