Description

Early 19th century. Single storey grain mill of rectangular plan. Vertically-boarded timber door centring SW gable; small square window centring NW elevation with door to left; small square window centring NE gablehead; 6-spoke, single-ring cast-iron waterwheel with square axle to right of centre in SE elevation with 2 small openings (perhaps for operating sluice) to left.

INTERIOR: raised timber floor at S end, cobbled floor to N, vertically- boarded timber lining to some walls. Cast-iron gearing and timber threshing machines surviving inside SE wall.

Statement of Interest

This mill, unaltered externally, and complete with all its early machinery (except for the paddles) constitutes a remarkable survival.
