1/152 Foxworthy Mill House and Mill
- (formerly listed as Foxworthy Mill
23.8.65 and Cottage)

House, formerly Mill House and Corn Mill. House late C17 or early C18 with later
additions; mill rebuilt early C20. Stone rubble. Corrugated iron roof, formerly
thatched. Stone chimneystack on each gable. The west stack is original with
thatch weatherings and projecting stone-course forming a cap. The east stack,
though it too has thatch weatherings, is later because it replaces a former hip,
the timbers of which are still visible in the roof-space. House has a 2-room plan
with gable fireplace in the larger west room; to north of fireplace is a rounded
stair turret. Abutting the house on the west is the mill building, now in the form
of a cross-wing but replacing a much more modest structure. 2 storeys, with added
single-storey lean-to. South front has wooden casement windows; north front is
largely taken up with the stair turret and lean-to. On west side of the mill is
the iron breast-shot water wheel, 12 feet in diameter. Moulded on it is the date
1892 and the name of the maker, C J Reed of Chagford.
Interior: larger room has chamfered upper-floor beam with run-out stops; most of
the joists have been renewed, but a few vaguely chamfered original joists remain.
Large fireplace has granite jambs and plain wood lintel; oven in the back. Stair
now has wooden treads, but 2 granite steps are said to survive underneath. Roof
has plain trusses with collars pegged to the face of the principals by one peg and
one old nail at each end.
Source: picture postcard of the mill, posted in 1907 but probably late C19. In
possession of the owner.
