I was graciously handed this one by a non member friend to check out while out with my lad & though not much there its a rather photogenic place.



It is a typical grade 2 listed water powered corn mill with not a lot left inside.

Built Circa 1800, & the machinery was replaced later in C19.

Its construction is of English garden wall bond red brick. Slate roof with gabled ends and brick dentil eaves; the taller main block has been reclad in

corrugated sheet steel.

It has a Rectangular plan with undershot waterwheel at the west end and by-pass through the east end of the mill; the east end appears to have been extended meaning the second wheel is now in the centre of the mill

An extension on the north front of the main block has been demolished

Main block has 3-storeys, all of which are now gone aside from some very sketchey beams on first floor 3 bays, centre loading doors on ground and first floors and flanking

windows, all with cambered arches; second floor windows in gable ends;

2-storey and attic range on left [east] has cambered archway through and gabled hoist housing in roof Large iron and wood undershot waterwheel on west end.

some but not much of the later C19 machinery is intact, including the primary gearing.

View into the East rooms



Pulleys & Millstones remain













Across from the mill is this rather unusual poly tunnel dry dock with its own lock gate!




Thanks For Looking
