SO99NW ALBION STREET

29/06/89 Albion Mill

GV II

Corn mill. Mid 1830s with later alterations. Brick; Welsh
slate roof. 3 storeys with basement. Stone coping with
kneelers. Roof space lit by large round-headed 2-light window
to each gable wall of the original building, otherwise
elliptical-headed windows with small-paned iron glazing
throughout (to both principal builds). Lower extensions flush
with the wall of the original mill building contribute to an
important group of industrial and canal structures.
INTERIOR: entrance retains its original pentice supported by
iron columns of circular section (now contained within later
C20 entrance building). Similar columns support the floors to
both original and principal extension, indicating a close date
for both phases. Stairs with simple newels and rail. King post
roofs. The mill originally projected over a branch of the
Birmingham Canal and had its own internal wharf and loading
gear; the arches (now blocked), marking the course of the
canal branch, survive, together with some original landing
gear. The mill was extended shortly after erection to
accommodate a large grain bin which rises through all the
floors and associated service rooms; the extension lies to the
right under 3 separately gabled roofs. Although altered, this
building is a good example of an early C19 corn mill
integrated with the West Midlands canal system.
