Mill, converted to accommodation, and mill house. Mill circa early C19; house
probably mid C17 although containing earlier features, some of which may be re-sited;
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.
Exterior: Asymmetrical 8 window front with thatched porch canopy to the front door
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
of small timber C19 and C20 1-, 2- and 3-light casements with glazing bars. The
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
sack hoist.
Roof: trusses over mill building probably early C19; pegged probably C18 trusses over
most of the left end of the house although 1 principal rafter, probably C17, also
survives. Roofspace over right end of house not inspected.
