Standing Building Recording (May 2007 - August 2007)

NT 5526 3017 Drawn analytical survey was undertaken between May and August 2007 of a ruined 19th-century mill building and the wider site in advance of proposals for conversion into a residence. The survey identified a structural sequence in which an original mill building (itself probably on a much older mill site) had successive additions to the E and N and modifications to the W. The grinding apparatus and timber framing remain largely intact though collapsed. At the E end of the main mill range was a substantial corn-drying kiln, with an access road to its upper level. A chute ran from this to the mill interior. The mill lade was traced from header dams and sluices far upstream to where it fed overshot to a substantial water wheel in its own wheelhouse at the W end of the mill.
