1. LONDON ROAD 4430 (West Side) WALLINGTON No 258 TQ 2865 NE 9/94 II 2.

C19 mill building which served as a flock or cotton mill; this was at one time known as Kilburn's cotton mill, attached to Kilburn's calico printing works, the latter using the area of The Grange as a bleaching ground. No 258 did not seem to have a wheel but obtained water from a stream which ran from The Grange via the neighbouring watercress beds as far as the Wandle. No 258 is a 2-storey building with 9 window bays to North and South sides. Hipped slate roof with red tile ridges. Wood overhanging eaves. Painted weatherboarded walls. In North side, 8 window bays and loft door at West end; C19 fixed windows with small panes above [4 panes wide and 2 deep]; lower windows 2 panes wide and 2 deep.

In east gable end, a loft door, and, on ground floor, a 4-flush-panelled door with rectangular fanlight. Modern accretions to ground floor on south side but original wall remains.

See Dr M Wilks, "A Checklist of Wandle Watermills".
