History

Late C18/early C19 corn mill and house. Shown on 1841 Tithe map. Later C19/early C20 alterations and additions, including late C19 rebuilding of kiln. The owner in 1841 was David Saunders Davies and the occupier, Richard Morgan. Birthplace of D.Wyre Lewis, bard, in 1872.

Exterior

House with mill complex attached to N. Rubble construction (house front is colourwashed). Slate roofs. House with timber eaves and barges. Rubble gable chimney stacks: also brick gable stack to rear wing. Three bay front to house, offset to left. Four-pane sash windows, the two to first floor rising to eaves and set closer to centre. Larger lower windows with timber lintels and slate sills: left window set higher. The placing of the windows suggest a late C19 refenestration. Central boarded door, cambered stone voussoired head. Modern tablet above, denoting birthplace of D.Wyre Lewis. Later rear wing, 4-pane sash windows with brick surrounds, two to rear and two to N: slate sills. Small porch in angle between wing and house. Rear of main house with C20 glazing except for small sash window to first floor. S end with C20 additions and conservatory.

Attached to N, linking house and mill is a recessed lower building of two storeys and bays, forming the grain-drying kiln. This was rebuilt in later C19. Colourwashed rubble front with boarded door to right and upper window to left: timber lintels. Rear with small window: stone lintel and sill.
