8/37 Gretton Mill -


Watermill and mill-house, now farmhouse. Early to mid-Cl9. Roughly coursed yellow sandstone rubble with red brick window dressings; plain tile roof. 2 storeys; site falls from east to west. Brick ridge stack off-centre to east and integral brick end stack to west. South front: pair of first-floor 2-light small-paned wooden-framed metal casements to left; ground-floor segmental-headed 2-light wooden casement to right and 3-light wooden casement to left flanking segmental-headed boarded door. Former mill to right (see straight joint) with boarded door and casement under large segmental head; lean-to to right with boarded door in left-hand return. Rear: one-storey lean-to to right with integral brick stack; segmental-headed boarded door to first floor of mill at left. Wheel pit adjoining gable end to north with rubblestone retaining walls; waterwheel missing at time of survey (September 1985) but axle and access hatches from mill survive; penstock tank also missing but the former supply pipe is still embedded in roadway to north. Interior: complete mill fittings and machinery survive including storage bins in loft, bag hoist-and hatches, grain chutes with canvas end covers, 2 pairs of stones behind boarded screen,shafts and gearing. Interior of house not inspected. The house and mill appear to have been built at slightly different dates (see straight joint in south front). Despite missing its waterwheel Gretton Mill is exceptional for retaining all its internal fittings and machinery and forms part of a complete mill group including the former stable (q.v.) to east.
