asbestos slate roof with deep overhanging eaves, gable ends and brick end stacks.
Lower range on right with rag slate roof with gable ends, stone rubble stack on left-
hand gable end, brick axial stack near centre of elevation and projecting truncated
stone rubble stack on rear elevation, in line with axial stack.
Left-hand house of 2 room and through passage plan with service room heated by rear
lateral stack added to rear in circa C18, remodelled and extended in 1947.
2 storeys almost symmetrical 3-window front. Ground floor with wide C19 28-pane sash
with crown glass and chamfered lintel, part glazed C20 door in centre and early C19
3-light casement to right with HL hinges. First floor with 3 early C19 3-light

Mill and millhouse adjoining on right-hand gable end, now converted to form one

arrangement of the plan is uncertain and the partitions have been altered. The left-
hand room of the millhouse appears to have been heated by a gable end stack and the
central room of the range by a projecting rear lateral stack. The axial stack may
have heated a first floor chamber.
