Formerly the mill house. C17, C19. Two bays on the south side remain from
the C17 mill house. Timber framed, plaster rendered and tiled. Two

east was built. Originally the pantry and stable. Claybat and long straw
thatch roof, hipped to east end. One storey and loft. South wall repaired
in brick. In mid C19, the house at the west end was built. Also of clay
bat, rendered with gault brick front wall and hipped, slate roof, with stack
in rear wall. Two storeys. Range of three recessed casements at first
floor. Stuccoed doorcase surround with plain entablature and cornice.
Inside: in the east wall of the timber framed part one post of an earlier
