History

This house was built in the early/mid C19 as the mill-house of The Glynn paper mill which was active c1800-c1850 and became a farmhouse on the closure of the mill. The section to the left which may have originally had a non-domestic use has since been incorporated into the house.
The surviving relics of the paper mill show The Glynn to have been a small hand mill and this house was presumably the mill owner's house.

Exterior

The house is rendered, presumably over local rubble stone and has a Welsh slate roof. It is a rectangular three bay block with a rear outshut. The original house was a two bay central entry one and the bay to the left beyond the chimney seems to have been added into the house later, it may have had a non-domestic use originally. The entrance has a panelled door in an architrave and with a plain segmental hood over. This is flanked by 8 over 8 pane sashes in elliptical heads with two more above. Plain roof with end stacks. The bay to the left has another sash on the ground floor and a paired one above.
The remains of The Glynn paper mill are on site including the mill pond and dam, the mill-race, the rag tank and sheds and walling.

Interior

The interior was only partly seen at resurvey. It is plain with an altered staircase.

Reasons for Listing

Included as an early/mid C19 house having an historical connection with the Whitebrook valley paper industry.
