ACOMB ACOMB MILL NY 9366 18/8 Old Mill


Mill, probably late C18. Roughly-squared stone with cut quoins; stone slate roof. 3 storeys, 2 bays. Ground floor has boarded door on far left; 3-light wooden-framed windows. Corniced left end stack. Mill House (q.v.) adjacent to left. Right return shows low central opening to wheelpit; iron pivot above for attachement of external steam engine.

Interior: overshot waterwheel with cast-iron hub and wooden spokes, with large cast-iron flywheel above. Interior of main part of mill in poor condition at time of survey, following fire damage.

The adjacent Birkey Burn did not maintain a sufficient flow to operate the mill at all seasons, hence the need for the nearby windmill (Lanthorn Cottage, q.v.) in the C18, and the use of a steam engine in the C19.
