Rear elevation similar, with a semi-circular arched window to the stairwell. Interior not seen. Extending from the north-west corner westwards a 2-storey stone building with slate roof, much altered and not of special interest. First recorded c1285, the mill was a water/grist mill until the mid C18, whereafter it was jointly a grain mill and a linen establishment - part of the house may date from the changeover - but all other mill buildings now demolished.
