II

Watermill, last used for fulling. First recorded 1293; present structure partly
late medieval; remodelled C18. Stone rubble and cob walls with steep hipped, almost
pyramidal, wheat-reed thatched roof. Square, 1-room plan with wheel position partly
enclosed to north side, probably breast shot. Built into bank to east. 2 storeys.
East front, i.e. first floor only at road level, has doorway, left with ledged door
and old oak unglazed window, right, with closely spaced mullions. Similar window to
south wall, ground floor and larger opening over. West front has leat exit, left
with old unglazed oak window over within walling of timber framing with wattle and
daub. Timber lacing continues from 1st floor sill level to almost half building
length. Window to right of leat exit within rubble walling rebuilt C18 or C19.
Wide doorway to ground floor right with pair of old ledged doors. Oak lintels. Old
oak rafter ends project from cob under eaves.
Interior has old wheel shaft in situ and timberwork for holding millstones.
Otherwise machinery removed. Heavy chamfered oak beams support old flooring. Some
older reused timber. Oak roof is probably C18 but is smoke-blackened possibly from
forge. C15/C16 oak jointed cruck, ie part of cruck post and truss blade, survives
from earlier roof in west wall towards north end.
In spite of the machinery having been removed this is a very unspoilt small
watermill.
First recorded 1293 (Hoskins)
