water-power. Herringbone-tooled coursed sandstone; pantiled roof
with stone ridge, copings and stacks. 1-storey, 3 bays. Central
cart entrance with inserted garage-type overhead door. Flanking
blacksmith's windows. Rear elevation shows catslide extension at

Remains of waterwheel attached to gearhouse, and fragmentary walls
of disused mill race. Centre and end coped chimneys.
