4/38 Abbey Mill


Marked on Ordnance Survey Map as Abbey Farm. Corn watermill and mill-house,
now house. Late C18 - early C19, on much older foundations. Coursed
rubble, stone slate roof. 2 storeys, 6 bays. Quoins. In fourth bay, part-
glazed C20 6-panel door below plain fanlight in ashlar surround on plinths,
with imposts, voussoirs to semicircular arch and tripartite keystone.
Ground-floor windows: sashes with glazing bars in ashlar surrounds, those of
first to third bays C20 copies. First floor: windows with flat arches,
those in first and second bays 9-pane unequally-hung sashes, the rest sashes
with glazing bars. Shaped kneelers, ashlar copings. Brick stacks at ends
and between second and third bays. The corn watermill formerly occupied the
first 3 bays, and had a matching doorway in the third bay. Below the second
ground-floor window is a blocked small square surround to a window which
lighted the gearing. The mill originally served the Abbey (qv) and was
connected with the river Swale by the head race and tail race; the ashlar-
lined wheelchamber being below the first bay. The watermill operated into
the 1950s, latterly generating electricity for the hamlet of Easby with a
turbine which is still in position in the wheelchamber, until it was
replaced by the National Grid.
