13/153 Thornthwaite Mill
Corn mill and mill house, now house and storage. Early-mid C19. Coursed
squared gritstone, graduated stone slate roof. 2 storeys, approximately 8
bays; a long range composed of (left to right): 2- or 3-bay offices and
storage, 5-bay mill range with wheel-house to rear, and right bay projecting
and gabled, and a 2-bay miller's house far right. Facade: ground floor of
offices - doorway with tie-stones and a C20 window; 2 part-blocked windows
in plain surrounds above. Mill range: a wide board door in tie-stone
surround, 4-pane sash to left, 25-pane sash to right, both in plain stone
surrounds. Door flanked by windows also to first floor, the window to left
enlarged mid C20. Projecting bay: part-blocked window in front bowed wall,
ground floor; sash with glazing bars above; both have large flush sill and
lintel. Projecting band and semicircular recess to pedimented gable. Mill
house: (main range, far right) - C20 glazed door with tie-stone jambs, mid
C20 frames in original stone surrounds to windows. Shaped kneelers and
gable copings, end stacks. Interior: central section only examined: ground
floor - stone blocks set in flooring with recesses for framework of missing
machinery. Large timbers support first floor, some possibly reused. Wheel-
house against rear wall has remains of overshot wheel, in derelict
condition. First floor: trap doors and stairs in straight flights. Roof
structure: double queen strut roof with notched carpenters marks, 3 trusses
over central range, one over house. The 1851 and 1871 censuses record that
the building was then a corn mill with Ralph and William Umpleby the
millers. The brick building to rear was built probably when the building
was used by Fernbeck Dairies, late C19 - mid C20. A barn next to the mill
was converted to a dwelling mid C20.
