5/125 Mill building at Lower Mill
Mill building with overshot water wheel. Circa 1870, built on the site of an earlier
mill (Harris). Local grey limestone rubble, brick dressings; corrugated iron roof,
gabled at ends. The overshot water wheel on the east side is powered by a leat which
runs through the churchyard (q.v.).
4 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front with regular fenestration and a gable to the
front with the first bay from the left and 4 doorways, one on each floor, in the same
bay. The doorways have red bullnose brick jambs, flat brick arches and stone cills.
The windows have red bullnose brick jambs, segmental brick arches and 2-light
casements, 3 panes per light. The 2 third floor left and right windows are similar
in design but smaller and blocked.
The east elevation has 3 small third floor windows with brick jambs and lintels, and
an overshot water wheel, approximately 7m in diameter, with timber spokes and iron
buckets. A single-storey addition adjoining the right end is coeval and clearly part
of the original mill complex.
A handsome mill building, backing on to the churchyard and creating an important
visual foil to the church tower.
