rubble with rendered cob above. Rendered to gable ends and rear. Gable-ended
scantle-slate roof. C19 addition of uncoursed stone rubble with gable-ended Welsh-
slate roof. Stone stacks with C20 brick tops.

Probably late C17 two-room plan house to left with central axial stack and dog-leg

Smaller right-hand room with external lateral stack to rear. Former mill to right
with integral end stack and mid-to late C19 one-storey outbuilding adjoining at right
angles to front. Mill formerly had external waterwheel to right-hand end wall so the

casements and one C18 two-light leaded wooden-framed metal casement to right. Three
probably C19 ground-floor 2-light small paned-wooded casements to right, one to right
with segmental head, and 2 probably C20 two-light leaded casements to left, with
straight joints below (probably former doorways). C20 two-leaf boarded door to left
and boarded door off-centre to right.
Outbuilding projecting to front between right-hand window and door; left-hand return
front of building has C20 wooden casement and 3 boarded doors with wooden lintels.
Small C19 two-light wooden casement in right-hand return front.
Interior: Ground-floor rooms of late C17 former cottage to left have chamfered cross
beams. The left-hand of the two rooms has open fireplace with bread oven and the
right-hand of the two rooms has open fireplace with wooden lintel and bread oven with
cast-iron door. Small right-hand ground-floor room with open fireplace to rear and
probably reset C17 door in right-hand wall. Former mill to right retains no old
machinery. Roofspace partly inspected: 5 bays to right of ridge stack has C17
principal rafter trusses with collars.
