a 5-light raking dormer, 3-light casements, two C20, sashes in surrounds with
keystone, and a C20 porch with oculus above. Three 2-light recessed chamfer

right has 3 and 4-light casements, and the return wall has the upper parts in
brickwork. Interior has been substantially modified, includes some C18 detail
and chamfered beams to run-out stops. There are no early staircases. This has
seen a major mill and house which has lost is integrity in a series of exten-
sions or alterations, but still retaining substantial historic fabric. There
was a water mill recorded here in 1495, was a cloth mill until the mid-C19, and
became a pin mill in 1870.
