Interior: C19 and C20 flooring. The mill was fed by a leat from the River
Skell near the west wall of the precinct which widened into a mill pond with
a dam against the west wall of the building. 2 waterwheels were in use,
serving 2 cornmills and later other processes. The north end, possibly
housing waterwheels, was demolished after the dissolution of Fountains Abbey
(qv) in 1539 and was replaced by the lower-roofed block. The mill continued
in use until the early C20. A Scheduled Ancient Monument. R Gilyard-Beer,
Fountains Abbey, 1977, p 75.
