LEIGHTON Kynnersley Arms Public House incorporating remains of mill and furnace

GV II

Public house, incorporating remains of mill and furnace. Public house late C19. Purplish brown brick, slate hipped roofs with tall stacks in roof slope and to sides. 2 storeys; 3-window front with prominent canted bay window to centre on ground floor, entrance to left; 2-bay range set back to left. The main interest of the building lies in the early C19 mill to rear (red brick with plain tile roof) and in the cast-iron undershot wheel of a former iron furnace below the wide round arch to the left. This is now connected to the gearing of the mill (see interior) but formerly activated the bellows of an iron furnace, which is said to have closed in 1760s. Interior: the massive crown and pinion oak gearing of the corn mill, which turned the twin millstones (through which the grain was fed from an upper floor) is visible through a glass inspection chamber in a back room of the public house. A charcoal-fuelled blast furnace was built at Leighton in 1662 and is mentioned again in 1685 and 1698. There are also references to gunshot having been held here for the Royalist forces during the Civil War, after which a furnace at Leighton was 'slighted' by General Waller. Trans. Salop Arch. Soc. 56 (i) (1957/8), p.71; V.C.H. Vol.I (1908), p.460; Shropshire Magazine, Vol.25 No.7 (October 1972), Pp. 28-9.
