substantial C20 renovations. Whitewashed, rendered stone and cob; roof, gabled at
ends, slated to left, thatched to right; right end stack and 2 axial stacks, the left
hand stack with shaft projecting through the roof to the rear of the ridge.
Plan: Single depth range;. the mill building to the left with an overshot water wheel
in situ (now inside the building) and a second external wheel. The plan of the house
is 3 heated rooms to the right (with some C20 repartitioning) and 2 unheated rooms to
the left and then the mill building. The position of the original entrance is not
clear; the house is said to have been divided into cottages at one time and has 3
doors on the front elevation. Rear left outshut is probably a C19 or C20 addition.

to right of centre; C20 glazed door to left of centre; C19 half-glazed door at
extreme right; first floor entrance to former mill building at extreme left. Variety

rear elevation preserves a small C17 2-light mullioned window on the ground floor.
Interior: Some C16 and C17 carpentry and joinery, considerable C20 replacement. The
left hand heated room has one C17 scroll-stopped half-beam, an open fireplace with
replaced lintel and 2 bread ovens and a partition wall with a blocked crank-headed
doorway. The room immediately to the left has a good plank and muntin screen amd a
probably re-sited C16 richly moulded axial beam which does not span the full width of
the room. Various features of the mill building have been retained including the

most of the left end of the house although 1 principal rafter, probably C17, also
survives. Roofspace over right end of house not inspected.
