The existing corn mill (restored 1960's) is substantially a rebuild, on an early
mill site, of circa 1764-68. L plan block of one and two storeys red brick with gable
end clay tile roofs. Brick dentil eaves. Barn at right angles to mill building with
ventilation in gable end. The 2 storey and attic main mill building has a restored
bracketted, cabled, weatherboarded hoist. Segmental arched small pane iron frame
window. Single storey south end of range was used as a blade grinding shop and adapts
as living accommodation in part, on reverting to corn grinding in the 1850's. At
this time additional power was provided by the installation of a steam engine, the
stack of which is built on to the north cable end of the main mill (tapering square
section with cornice cap). The well preserved machinery was probably installed when
corn winding resumed in the 1850's (probably brought from Trittiford Mill) and has
a high breast shot cast iron wheel in the main building with a smaller overshot wheel
in the former blade grinding plant to the south. Caomplete set of stones, gearing,
hoppers etc.
