8/207 Castle Mill: central
building at right-angle
to road (formerly listed
25.3.83 as Block B under Castle Mills
(Consisting of blocks A to E))


Mill building, now derelict. Mid-late C18 with later alterations. Brick,
English bond, with sandstone details; stone slate roof. 3 storeys, 5 bays
and linked at the north-east corner to road-side range (q.v.). Stone plinth
and quoins. Right - inserted 4-panel door with blocked window right again
and 3 C20 windows to left. First floor: blocked window far right; 4 square
windows with flush wood frames, the second from the left probably original,
with 3 horizontal lights - the lower light boarded, centre light of 4 panes,
and top light open (in some cases also boarded). Wooden lintels, 2 to right
repaired in cement. Second floor: original window bay 4, the remainder
blocked. Rear - ground floor: board door bay 2, windows boarded over.
First floor: 3 windows with 3 horizontal lights, 8-pane fixed window to
right. Second floor: left window blocked, remainder of 3 horizontal lights.
Right return: remains of projecing brick stack on stone corbels at first
floor. Interior not inspected at resurvey, but reported to contain a stone-
vaulted cellar and roof structure of 3 king post trusses in soft wood
(Harrogate Borough Council, p 10). To left- 2-storey linking range of brick
with slate roof, (between this building and range to south-west, formerly
block C - q.v.), built after 1851 and not of special interest. This
building is possibly on the site of the paper mill complex operated in 1771
by John Lomas, and converted to a cotton mill in 1791. There was a low
range attached to the east end of the south side and shown in the Ordnance
Survey map of 1851. Harrogate Borough Council, The Future of Castle Mills,
1983. B Jennings, Harrogate and Knaresborough, 1970, p 264.
