stone slate and sheet asbestos roofs. Elongated range of 3 builds. 4 and 3
storeys, 1:4:2 windows to 1st floor. Earliest part on left: large quoins;
segmentally-arched door with unglazed window on right and old casement with
glazing bars over; large C20 casement to 2nd floor and door on right giving
access to bridge (not of special interest) forming link to Thorp Arch Mill
(q.v.); casement window beneath segmental arch to 3rd floor. Concreted steps
against left return give access to upper floor doorways. Adjoining 3-storey
range set back on right has part-glazed door and 4-pane sash on left and on
right a door with margin-glazed overlight and a 6-pane sash. 1st floor has
small 2-light horizontally-sliding sashes with glazing bars and an altered
16-pane sash; C20 casements to 2nd floor. Angled back on right is a third
range with segmentally-arched door to left, 3 casement windows and another

segmentally-arched door on right; 2 small casements to 2nd floor.
Interior:basement of 4-storey part has brick vaulting; roof has pattern-book
king-post trusses. Thorp Arch Mill (q.v.) was originally built as a rape-
seed oil mill in the lat C17 but this range probably served its later use as
a paper mill under the ownership of Kelita Kitchen (Scott, p.21). Third part
of range to right included for group value.
