WHALLEY KING STREET
SD 73 NW
2/82
Abbey Corn Mill
GV II

Former corn mill and associated buildings. Erected 1837 by John Taylor of Moreton
Hall. Coursed rubble; Welsh and local slate gable end roofs. 4-storey mill with
lean-to water-wheel house to north: 2 storey cottages and ancillary buildings to
east and west. The mill has quoining to all angles, but the cottage range detail-
ing suggests that it is roughly coeval. Mill building, 3 window range (towards
access street), the centre with openings with projecting surrounds (some concealed
by later hoist case in timber), side windows with sills and lintels and renewed
casements. Wheel-house retains its undershot water wheel, under brick vaulted
ceiling. Lower range to east, 2 storeys under 2 roof levels, but all of one date.
Unit adjacent to mill with elliptically- headed cart entrance to right and loading
opening above, 2 closely set 4-pane horned sashes, another window with renewed
casement, and a doorway, all with projecting surrounds; 2 1st floor openings.
Three units under lower roof line, one a store (2 doorways and a simple 1st floor
opening), another an office (formerly a cottage) with 2 1st floor and 1 ground
floor sash in projecting window surrounds, and a C20 window; the third unit a
cottage fronting King Street: here a 2 window range with horned sashes (one re-
placed) and a half-glazed C20 door. Mill interior: wooden floors supported by
iron columns with circular section. The mill and cottages form an interesting
group within an important Conservation Area.
