PETER TAVY PETER TAVY SX 57 NW 9/104 Higher Mill - II

Mill and mill-house. C18 possibly with C19 addition. Stone rubble walls. Slate roof gabled at front of right-hand wing and hipped to left-hand wing. 2 stone rubble stacks with off-sets - one lateral at the front and one projecting from right-hand end of wing. Plan: Wing projecting to front at either side and central recessed section. The mill is in the left-hand wing and is completely self-contained with only external access. To its rear is a room which forms part of the house. In the central section is the principal heated room with a corner fireplace, and to its right is a cross passage. The right-hand wing may be a C19 addition although it contains the staircase. This is at the rear reached from the passage and it has a very small dairy beyond to its right. In the front of the wing is a small parlour. The plan remains completely unaltered. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front with mill in hipped wing projecting to the left and shallower gabled wing to the right. The mill has 2 C19 small-paned casements on its front wall. On its inner face is a doorway with slate canopy above. Pigeon holes on 1st floor. The central section has its stack projecting in the angle with the mill wing and to its right is a 3-light C20 small- paned casement with dripmould on the ground floor and 2 similar single light casements above, which are under small gables. At its right end the central section has a C19 lean-to porch in angle with right-hand wing and C20 plank door behind. The wing to the right has a 2-light early C20 small-paned casement on the 1st floor with a 3 light C19 casement below which is in recessed surround. Late C19 lean-to against right-hand end wall. The mill wheel was originally against the left wall of the mill wing but has been removed although its position can be seen. Interior: The Mill retains its machinery which is enclosed on the ground floor, with the mill-stones on the floor above. In the principal room of the mill-house is the original granite-framed fireplace with a rough lintel and traces of an oven in the side. The dairy has slate shelves. Simple framed dog-leg staircase. This building remains very unaltered since the C19 and is prominently situated on the roadside.
