5/44 The Mill (formerly listed as
11.11.52 Lympstone Mill)

- II

Water mill and miller's house. Early C19 with later alterations. Cob on stone
footings and brick, plastered and pinkwashed; gabled-end slate roofs. The miller's
house to left comprises 2 adjacent parallel ranges that lie at right angles and
project forward from the mill itself to the right. This contains a drying room and
ovens to treat the malt which was processed here, and is served by an overshot water
wheel to the right-hand end. C19 openings, 2 to gable wall and first floor of the
wheel end, single and 2-light windows to the front, with a delivery hatch to first
floor. House has twin gabled front with wavy bargeboarding and spike finials. The
house range nearest to the mill is probably the original, partly of cob, but much
repaired in brick; horned sash windows and C20 single-light casement windows. The
other range, of 3 storeys, pantiled porch; horned sash windows.
