altered and floor has mostly collapsed,however the staggered purlin king post roof

The southern waterwheel is a low breast-shot wheel approximately llft in
diameter. It is constructed of a mixture of cast iron and wood, with cast iron hub,
rim and shaft. This drove only a single pair of millstones and a sack hoist. The
pit wheel is also wooden with iron gearing. The northern wheel is also a breast-shot
wheel, it has cast iron rims with wooden floats between, and a cast iron hub. To
the north side of the wheel is a cast iron bevel wheel. As this was converted
sometime in Cl9 to a sawmill no stones survive to the north side.
