NORTH MOLTON HEASLEY MILL
SS 73 SW
10/159 Heasley Mill including wheel pit
- to north-east
Watermill. Probably mid to late C19, incorporating remains of former probably early
C19 mill or tannery. Uncoursed stone rubble with gable-ended corrugated iron roof.
Plan and development: Mill aligned approximately north-west/south-east. It was
constructed from the remains of a much larger building (known from old photographs)
which was aligned approximately north-east/south-west and was of 4 storeys. It was
probably reduced (and the alignment altered) in the later C19. South-east wall of
watermill incorporates part of south-east wall of former mill (including
fenestration). Two storeys and loft.
Exterior: Gable end to south-east has openings (part of former large mill building)
offset to left, including 2-light wooden loft casement with wooden lintel, first
floor 2-light wooden window with wooden lintel, stone segmental relieving arch and
internal wooden shutters with strap hinges, and ground-floor 2-leaf boarded door with
strap hinges, wooden lintel and stone segmental relieving arch. Gable end to north-
west approached at first-floor level (land higher to rear) has boarded door to right
with brick segmental-arched head. South-east side has pair of first-floor small-
paned windows with pegged frames, wooden lintels and stone segmental relieving arch.
Ground-floor boarded opening to left with wooden lintel and stone segmental relieving
arch. Wheel pit to south-east side of mill with sluice gate (retaining raising gear)
to north-east. Remains of probably overshot waterwheel, with 2 cast-iron rings,
wooden arms and cast iron wheel shaft. Formerly with wooden floats, since removed or
rotted. Opening in wall above wheel, with splayed jambs.
Interior: Complete set of machinery including 2 sets of stones on first floor with
two-step spurwheel drive from pit wheel in ground-floor. Drive machinery enclosed in
wooden housing. Secondary drive taken off pit wheel, with belt to hoist pulley.
