SJ 30 SE
11/94 Watermill approx. 25
- metres to south-west
of Hogstow Mill


Watermill, now disused. Circa 1815, probably incorporating parts of an
earlier mill. Red brick and uncoursed sandstone rubble with red brick
dressings; slate roofs. L-plan. 2 storeys and gable-lit attic with
one storey and attic office wing to north. Dentil brick eaves cornice;
integral brick end stack to east. Main block: north front: first-floor
2-light segmental-headed wooden casement off-centre to right, ground floor
3-light segmental-headed wooden casement off-centre to right, and segmental-
headed boarded opening to right (probably formerly to accommodate belt drive
for external machinery). Wing adjoining at right-angles has segmental-headed
entrance in corner of return front with pair of boarded doors flanking
window behind; gable end to front with one 2-light segmental-headed wooden
casement on each floor to left and central segmental-headed boarded loft
door. Wheel pits at each end of main block, that to left still retaining
cast iron overshot waterwheel (wooden paddles missing) and cast iron sluice
above. Interior: some machinery survives; ground floor: gearing for surviving
wheel, 2 grain chutes, and timber framed partition wall to machinery for
former right-hand wheel; first floor: 2 banded stone-housings, some wooden
shafting and gearing, and trap doors. Ground is banked up behind the mill
building. The previous mill was burnt down in 1814 and rebuilt the next
year, probably incorporating some of the remains. An alternative
explanation of the present structure is that it is a rebuilding of the
1815 mill. The building forms part of a complete mill group including a
house (qv), a barn (qv) and stables (qv). V.C.H., Vol. VIII, p.307.
