Statement of Interest

Appears on 1856 OS Map. Part of a small group of early buildings formerly including a corn mill (to S of house). Part of a side wall and a single-storey sandstone rubble shed attached to it are all that remains of this structure (1999). It is likely that grain for the mill was stored in the W outbuilding, where it would have received some ventilation from the partially open-walled cartshed below. See separate list description for adjacent Woodmill Bridge.
