Two portals to Mill (premises

occupied by Systematic Glazing

Services Installations Ltd)
SE 1230 58/267


The mill proper has been very considerably altered but was one of the earliest
worsted mills in Horton dating from 1817 and known as Bank Top Mill. It was much
enlarged in 1860-66 and the unaltered portals are dated 1864. The massive ashlar
portals flank the set back front of the mill. They have chamfered quoins, archivolt
archways, with bearded head keystones and impost mouldings and are finished off by
entablatures with bracket cornices. The east portal is surmounted by a large scroll
supported and corniced blind plaque or cartouche with wreath surround. The
architects for the enlargment of the mill and the portals were Milnes and France.
