2/143 The Old Mill
House, incorporating small remains of watermill. Used in C19 as laundry for
Brome Hall and Oakley Park estate. Principally late C16 and C17, in several
phases; mid C20 addition to north. Timber framed, mainly plastered, with a
pantiled roof. 2 storeys and attic. Various small-paned casement windows.
At the south end are 2 small square windows at upper floor level, probably
once ventilation openings for the laundry drying room. C18 lean-to addition
across part of the front, with boarded and half-glazed doors. A glazed door
in the main range. One gabled dormer. 2 stacks with clustered polygonal
shafts. Short lean-to on south gable end was part of a mill, which must have
extended as far as the adjacent wheel channel. Older part of house is to
south: the upper floor of the end room has been removed, probably when the
laundry was started; the adjacent bay has plain joists to ground floor
ceiling. North half is C17: one bay of chamfered joists; plain first floor
studding. Roof over this section has stepped diminished butt purlins, of
later C17 date. ______________________________
