Spring Valley Mill, Spring Valley Lane, Ardleigh - Tendring

C18 watermill, white weatherboarding over painted brick base. Beam engine of c1873 now gone but mill machinery intact. Mill disused since1930s. Roofs leaking and building splitting apart. Front wall bulging and some of the weatherboarding is missing. These defects put the structure and the machinery inside at serious risk. Investigation and urgent works to 'mothball' the building, grant aided by Historic England, have been carried out. Final report to be reviewed with owner, his advisers and local planning authority as appropriate to determine a viable way forward.
