There is reference to a Norchard water corn grist mill in 1699. The mill is shown on the Norchard Farm plan 1772.
A small corn mill of 2 storeys, fed by a millpond immediately E of the farmhouse. The mill is built into the S face of the dam. The upper floor is reached from the dam and there are no internal stairs. The millwork survives but in a ruinous and collapsed condition. The axle of the water wheel is in situ but the remainder of the wheel is missing. Probably breast-shot. The sluice is intact. Tailwater passes through a culvert and emerges S of the adjacent farm path.
There is a wing to the S which may be later than the main part of the mill.
Description: Random rubble local stone, slate rooves. The main part of the mill is aligned E/W and is approximately 4.5 m by 7.2 m internally. Millwork and water wheel at the E. There are 2 stones.
Lower-level single storey wing at S also in rubble masonry and with slate roof, all below main eaves. The wing is approximately 4.8 m by 7.2 m internally. The culvert at the SE runs slightly under the corner of the wing of the building, which is evidence that the wing is not original.
Listed for historic interest as a small corn mill with surviving machinery and for group value with Norchard Farm.
