Water-powered corn mill, now workshop and store (and
apparently unoccupied at time of survey). Rebuilt in C18,
replacing a late C16 mill; altered. Coursed sandstone rubble
with quoins, slobbered render, stone slate roof. T-plan formed
by a main range built at right-angles to the lane and down the
slope of the river bank, with full-height outshuts to both
sides of the upper end by the road.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys over a basement storey. The entrance front
in the east side has one window to the upper floor of the
outshut, a low 2-storey lean-to porch in the angle, with an
oak lintel, a shallow loading doorway over this and an inner
wagon doorway with a loading door over it, to the right of the
porch 2 square windows at ground floor and one above, and
further right a low inlet archway to the wheel in the
basement. The south gable wall has 4 small windows at ground
floor and 2 above, and a gable chimney. On the west side the
outshut has a basement doorway and one window on each floor
above, the main range has one window to the basement, 3 square
windows above (that in the centre offset upwards), and an
arched outlet opening from the waterwheel. The north gable
wall has a square-headed opening to a small cast-iron
undershot waterwheel which has been restored with plain oak
planks replacing the former buckets.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
