13/65 Millend Mill
Mill, unused at time of survey (November 1985). Mill site since
C14, this building rebuilt by Henry Hicks at some point between
late 1790s and 1820. Coursed and dressed stone with corner
pyramidal finials on north gable end, roof mainly tile, partially
slate, stone end stacks. Large brick addition with slate roof on
west side of late C19, later concrete addition of C20 on east side
not of special interest. Main block of 4 storeys and attic, single
range with brick addition forming L-shape to front, and with long
single storey brick shed to rear. Seven windows, 2-light stone
mullions, all blocked. North gable end has former haulingways,
blocked round-headed opening to top, double doors in cambered head
opening below, and long blocked opening below. Door on ground
floor to right. South gable end has 5 tiers of two 2-light, all
similarly blocked or bricked up. Brick section has round or
cambered head lights to upper floors, all bricked up, and curved
south west corner corbelled out on stone. Interior not
accessible, but may be of interest. This is the only mill of 3 on
the River Frome in Eastington parish rebuilt by the clothier Henry
Hicks in the early C19, remaining in anything like its original
form. The mills were subsequently run by the Hooper family up to
the end of the C19; Meadow Mill has been much altered, Churchend
Mill demolished. Millend Mill was a corn mill in 1939, empty by
1968, and is said to have had 4 water wheels in the late C19.
