Sanderson & Co. Reinforced concrete structure with brick
cladding and concrete and faience dressings. Steel framed roof

Square tower, 4 stages, 6x6 bays, with shallow buttresses
rising the full height. Corner buttresses topped with
pedimented niches and domes. On one corner, a square brick
pedestal carrying the water tank. The top stage has 6 windows
on 3 sides, and the name of the mill worked in white tile on
