South Saw Mills, South Yard, HM Naval Base, Plymouth - Plymouth, City of (UA)

Sawmill built between 1856 and 1859. The saw mills ceased to be used as such in 1987, but the ground floor remained in light industrial and storage use until 1997. An options report was issued in 2010, but the building remains vacant with no identifiable use. The roof was provided with a large net in 2017 to prevent dislodged roofing materials becoming flying projectiles.
