Architecture Notes

A water-powered grain mill with an iron-framed overshot waterwheel and associated flume and lade, but which at the time of survey in 2002 was in an advanced state of decay, sections of roof (over the mill itself) having collapsed. The mill, which is two-storeyed with rubble walls and a piended slate roof, occupied an 'L'-plan building at the north end of the range, the kiln (with revolving roof venitlator) being situated in the centre, sandwiched between the mill and a store at the south end of the range.
