Maplehurst Mill House
Mill house (and old mill). C16 or earlier, altered C18 and early. Mid C19.
Timber framed and clad with red brick, with tile hanging and weather boarding to
rear wings. Lobby entry plan. Two storeys to hipped roof with gablets and
large moulded and filleted central stack and stack to rear right. Two
tripartite sashes to each floor, with cambered heads on ground floor, and small
central casements on 1st floor and boarded central door on ground floor.
Half-glazed door and casements to right return. Hipped 2 storeys rear wing and
gabled weather boarded 3 storeys rear wing (original mill), with C20 1 storey
hipped extension. In plan, the weather boarded range, ....... east-west across
the stream, appears to be earliest, with exposed framing of medieval character,
the upper floors remodelled C18, and is probably a combined house and mill such
as remains at Swanton Mill, Mersham, Kent (Ashford District). The lobby, entry
range a later addition at right angles. The mill of 1756 is adjoining to the
north west linked by a canted 2 storey piece, probably C19 infill. Hasted
remarks that the "old mill" was close to the south of the "new" mill of 1756
(see also item 13/36). [See Hasted, III, 114].
