1/63 Hawks Mill, (including
bridge beneath road
26.5.81 attached to west side.)


Former watermill. Built 1884, the wings added in 1892 5-window main range, 3
storeys with attics. Slightly set-back wings one window wide on either side,
of 2 storeys with attics. Red brick with twin bands of gault brick at various
levels. Pilasters between each bay of the centre range rise from 1st floor,
have capitals at 3rd floor and support round arches at 3rd storey; within
each of these is a circular window. Mainly concrete plaintiled roofs, the
higher block with gabletted hips and the lower blocks half-hipped. (The right
hand block has an asbestos-slated roof). Small-pane iron windows with
segmental heads of gauged gault brick. Boarded doors, some with oblong
fanlights. A weatherboarded hoist with small-pane casements is cantilevered
centrally above the 3rd storey; a smaller and lower hoist projects from the
left hand gable. The left-hand block contains an Armfield water turbine which
is still in working order; in front of it is a late C18 bridge beneath the
road. Its outer face has two semicircular arches, mainly red brick with
random burned headers. The parapets are rebuilt in C19 gault brick. The
milling machinery has been removed.
