ST04SW OLD CLEEVE CP ABBEY ROAD WASHFORD Abbey Mill House (previously listed separately as Mill House and Abbey Mill)



Corn mill and miller's house, now dwelling. C17 on site of earlier mill, altered C18, enlarged mid C19, refenestrated late C20. Rendered over rubble, hipped slate roof. L-plan, mill right and house left under one roof, addition at rear. 2 storeys, 5 bays; irregularly placed fenestration, C20 metal casements, loft door centre, ground floor 3-light casement left of entrance, stable door right; entrance remains of raised and fielded panel door with inserted lights, C20 porch. Loft door in right return gable end. Interior, partially viewed; it would appear that this was originally two cell and cross passage, the right half being the mill with attached 2 bay shelter shed beyond covering waterwheel, now removed. The walls were raised in the C18, perhaps when the end bay sheltershed was incorporated into the building, now forming a garage. Main interest is the large amount of machinery remaining, hardly altered since milling ceased in the 1940's. This stands on the site of the mill to Cleeve Abbey (qv).
