2/135 (inset) Former Paper Mill
Farmer Paper Mill, now printing ink manufacturer's premises. Probably c. 1840 for
James Annandale, on site occupied by corn mill since C17 and by paper mill
since 1703. Sandstone ashlar with quoins; Welsh slate roof with yellow ridge
tiles and stone gable copings. Irregular plan. South elevation towards lane:
2 gabled blocks linked by block with hipped roof; long low block breaks forward
from the right of the hip-roofed block.
First gabled block of 3 storeys, 2 bays has right bay obscured by linking block;
left ground-floor fixed light of 3 rows of 4 panes, with one opening pane;
similar but 9-pane window above; on top floor double boarded partly-glazed
loading doors with pulley girders projecting above. Curved blocks support
rectangular kneelers of coping with panelled block finial.
2-storey, 4-bay block at right has 16-pane sashes on first floor; ground floor
obscured by small later addition at left, and long one-storey range breaking
forward at right; hipped roof. One-storey range has double-pitch roofs extending
over low side sections; 4 windows with vertical glazing bars in left return;
shorter extension on right return obscured by goods. On front elevation a
gabled small addition.
To right of hip-roofed part, and partly obscured by one-storey range, a 2-storey,
2-bay gabled block has ground-floor blocked windows, 16-pane sashes above with
flat stone lintels and projecting stone sills, and 12-pane sash in gable peak;
gable has similar treatment to that at left of group. Interior not inspected.
The only surviving paper mill building on the Derwent, a river once renowned
for its usefulness in such manufacture. This mill made among other things
particularly strong cartridge paper, used for ammunition.
