NORTH TAWTON SS 60 SE 6/73 Newland Mill GV II Former corn and flour mill, now disused. 1814 with considerable mid and late C19 additions. Stone rubble walls with brick to the additions. Hipped and gable ended slate roof. Large very tall detached rubble stack at rear. Plan: the original mill building is at the front and was probably of only one room on each floor with the wheel at its left-hand end. In the mid C19 it was heightened and extended in a wing at the rear. In the late C19 a large 4-storey block was added at the rear with a chimney stack for a steam engine. Another wing was built at right angles at the right-hand side of the main range, probably with purely storage functions. Exterior: 3 storeys, 4 storey rear range. The original building at the front has stone arches to windows and a line in the stone work where its original gabled roof was raised another storey. Iron mill-wheel is in pit to its left hand side which has breast-shot action. Mid C19 wing extends to its rear with late C19 wing to its right and taller block at the rear with chimney. Interior: the mill machinery appears to be intact - its gearing has wooden teeth and there are 2 millstones. The mid C19 heightening and addition was probably to provide extra accommodation for corn bins as these make up a false second floor. Source: Walter Mortimer - The History of North Tawton.
