first floor. There is a C20 extension in the angle between the 2 domestic wings.
The right hand gable end of the mill has C20 fenestration in the loading bay on the
third floor. The slate hood and winch above the loading bay remains intact. Rear
elevation with pit, race and only part of shaft of wheel remaining.
Interior : Mill machinery of circa late C19 has been restored and is complete
including 2 pairs of balanced millstones and sack hoist. Left hand wing with closely
